Salmon kebabs hot off the grill

Salmon is a highly nutritious fish loaded with heart-healthy fats – a 3-ounce portion of salmon, depending on the variety, contains between 700 – 1,800 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acid.

Research indicates diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation and decrease your risk of heart disease. Because salmon can be a strong flavor, lemon helps balance and bring a light citrus taste. In contrast, dill adds a slightly green, fresh note to this entrée.

This simple, flavorful dish – ready in just 20 minutes, will be a weeknight staple. So, if you’re looking for a quick and healthy meal, try this grilled lemon salmon kebabs recipe.
