This wonderful recipe first marinates salmon in a spiced ranch dressing mixture and then grills it until it is cooked beautifully. If you can find sprigs of rosemary, you can use those as the skewers. Not only does this give you a much better-looking result (much more sophisticated!) but the rosemary will flavor the fish delicately, infusing it with a delicious aroma. Whether you are using rosemary spears or wooden skewers, it is important to soak them for half an hour in cold water before you cook the salmon kabobs recipe. If not, they might catch fire on the grill and that will of course ruin your kabobs.

You can serve your favorite green salad on the side and perhaps some extra ranch dressing or some lemon wedges. Some people might like to add the dressing to the salad or the fish and others might prefer the lemon juice, so it is a good idea to offer both. You can also serve a homemade potato salad with this salmon kabobs recipe; that would go really well.

Take care not to overcook the salmon. It is always important to cook fish for the right amount of time, so it does not dry out, but it is very important if you are making kabobs. If the fish is too flaky in a baked fish recipe or a pan-fried fish recipe, it might not matter too much. In this salmon kabobs recipe however, if they are too flaky, the salmon will just fall off the skewers before you can serve them, so take care, and keep a close eye on them while they cook.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
