Grilled Salmon Kabobs & Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad With Tomatoes

A Scrumptious Summer Supper

I wanted to share with you the lovely summer meal that Luke and I had Wednesday night. We grilled up Salmon Kabobs and made an amazing Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes. It was delicious, filling, and super healthy! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.

Grilled Salmon Kabobs
Printable Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. – Fresh Oregano, chopped
  • 2 Tbs. – Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tsp. – Cumin, ground
  • 1/4 tsp. – Red Pepper Flakes, crushed
  • 1-1/2 Lbs. – Wild Salmon Fillet, skinned and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 – Lemons, very thinly sliced into rounds
  • Olive Oil cooking spray
  • Coarse Sea Salt, to taste
  • 16 – Bamboo Skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour.

Directions
  • Heat the Grill on Medium Heat, and rub Oil on the grates. Combine Oregano, Sesame Seeds, Cumin, and Red Pepper Flakes in a small bowl, mix well, and set aside.
  • Use 2 parallel skewers and thread Salmon and folded Lemon Slices beginning and ending with salmon. You should yield 7 or 8 completed skewers.
  • Lightly coat the salmon with the Olive Oil Spray, then season with Salt and the reserved spice mixture.
  • Grill the Salmon Kabobs, turning occasionally, until fish is opaque throughout, about 8-10 minutes.

Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes Printable Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1-Box – Israeli Couscous (whole wheat pearl couscous)
  • 1-Bundle – Thin Asparagus Spears (reserve water from boiling)
  • 1-1/2  Cups – Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup – Red Onion, finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 – Lemons, juiced
  • 1 Tbs. – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbs. – Fresh Italian Parsley, chopped
  • Coarse Sea Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper, to taste
  • Slivered Almonds, optional
Salad Prep

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Rinse Asparagus. Snap bottoms off to remove tough ends (If you bend the asparagus they will snap in the appropriate place).
  • Place asparagus into the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a large slotted spoon and rinse in a colander with cold water to stop cooking.
  • Turn off burner and replace lid to the asparagus water. Reserve for later.
  • Cut asparagus into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Chop Tomatoes (I used our homegrown regular sized tomatoes, but you could use grape or pearl tomatoes), Red Onion, and Italian Parsley.
  • Place all chopped vegetables and herbs into a large bowl.
Couscous

Directions

  • Bring Asparagus Water back to a boil.
  • In a skillet, add the Olive Oil and the Couscous (my box had about 1-1/2 Cups of couscous). Toast the couscous until lightly golden.
  • Follow the directions on your couscous box for how much Boiling Water to use. the asparagus water will add extra flavor.
  • Bring couscous to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer, and cover couscous.
  • Simmer for about 10-12 minutes or until couscous has soaked up all of the water. If it sticks to the pan a little, you can add a tiny bit more of the asparagus water to loosen the couscous from the pan.
  • Add the couscous to the other salad ingredients in the bowl, Salt and Pepper to taste.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the Salmon Kabobs hot off the grill.
  • The Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes can be served directly after making, at room temperature, or chilled.
  • We rounded out the meal with fresh sliced Avocado.
  • Leftover salmon can be added to the couscous salad for a delicious lunch the next day. Warm the salmon or use it cold.

Please let me know how much you enjoy this
Scrumptious Summer Supper!
