And here it is: Lemon Salmon Kabobs. Chunks of fresh salmon, threaded on skewers with fresh lemon slices, drizzled with olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper, and grilled to tender perfection. (If you just can’t wait until grilling season to try this, a grill pan on your stove can do the same job.)

You can eat the salmon and the lemon together, or just pull the chunks off the skewers and squeeze the lemon juice on top. Add green salad and rice or couscous to make a complete, healthy meal.
