Salmon kabobs take less than 20 minutes to make, it’s one of the quickest and easiest main dish recipes ever! Prepping the salmon takes about 10 minutes – just cut salmon into 1-inch cubes, toss with lemon, garlic powder, salt and pepper and thread onto skewers. Baking the salmon in the oven takes 8 minutes – 5 minutes baking at 425F, then 3 minutes on Broil. Because the salmon is cut into relatively small pieces, it bakes really quickly – to keep salmon juicy, make sure you don’t overcook it!
The trick to the baked salmon kabobs looking like they came from the grill is the Broiling method. Since Broil is a very high heat coming from the top of the oven, it slightly chars the salmon so it gets the “grilled” look 🙂 Using the oven to cook salmon kabobs is so much easier than the grill and the result is just as delicious!
