Salmon is truly a fish for all seasons. It can be prepared in so many tasty ways, and this is one of my favorites. Baked or grilled, the light marinade makes this dish unforgettable. It’s easy and quick to prepare, but your friends will think you cooked all day.

Method:

  • Skin salmon and cut it into 1-inch pieces. Mix garlic, oil, basil and lemon juice in a bowl. Combine with salmon and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Place skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before building the skewers. (This will keep them from burning.)
  • Alternate peppers, onions, mushrooms, and salmon on skewers.
  • Place on a hot grill for 8 to 10 minutes, turning often, or place on a baking sheet in a 375-degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
