Salmon Kabobs on the Grill

How did I never do salmon kabobs on the grill before? Spring is next week and this may be a dish we do every week because these kabobs are just that tasty, as each piece is marinated getting all the flavors infused in each bite.

Grilled Salmon Kabobs

Sometimes I’m just like every other home cook in America. I run dry on inspiration. I started this food blog years ago to document my own recipes and bring easy, healthy recipes to make your job easier and more delicious. There are times I feel like I have no idea what to make and I even forget to take a look at my over 1300 recipes.

There was a time when I used to make more complicated dishes, but now that I have a keto bakery and have to spend at least two full days baking, I look forward to getting out of the kitchen. However, I want to get back in the kitchen with more savory dishes, so please take the time to subscribe if you haven’t already.
