Salmon kabobs are the perfect way to mix things up with fish. They cook super fast and are fun to dip in a flavorful tzatziki sauce.

  • 1 pound of fresh salmon 
  • 12 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup full-fat plain yogurt (I used Siggi’s 4%)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and small diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, minced


  1. Cut salmon fillet into small cubes, then thread onto skewers (I filled three).
  2. Drizzle with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Grill at 400 degrees for ~15 minutes, rotating every 5-7 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F). 
  4. While salmon is cooking, make your sauce by combining yogurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice & zest and dill in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. To serve: top each kabob with tzatziki sauce (or leave on the side for dipping). 


I divided the fish onto three skewers. Depending on how many sides you have, this could very well be enough to serve four (just evenly divide onto four skewers).
