Grilled Salmon and Veggie Kabobs

Mediterranean Grilled Salmon

Grilled salmon is our new go-to summer recipe.

We love how grilled sockeye salmon is healthy, easy, and cooks up in no time on the barbecue.

While many people reserve the grill for steaks and sausage, we’re here to give you all the details on grilled fish.

We think these grilled salmon kabobs are gorgeous, and they are even tastier than they look!

The Mediteranean sauce is one of the best grilled salmon marinade recipes, it adds in lots of extra flavor.

Change up your normal veggie kabobs by using the same marinade on skewers featuring a Mediteranean twist – artichokes!

Grilled salmon temp

When making grilled salmon, you want to preheat your grill to a high temperature, around 500 degrees F.

This will help to reduce the chance your Mediterranean salmon won’t stick to the grill grates.

The internal grilled salmon temperature should reach 125 degrees F for medium doneness.

How long to grill salmon

We always like to cook grilled salmon with skin still on. This helps to prevent the flesh of the fish from sticking to the grill.

After marinating, place the salmon kabobs skin side down on the grill.

There is no need to flip the grilled sockeye salmon, simply cook for about 6-8 minutes.
