This marinated salmon recipe is a fantastic way to barbecue salmon in the summer. Salmon is a wonderful lighter alternative to the usual meats that grace a barbecue grill, and Marcello Tully's recipe really makes the salmon shine.
The lemon in the marinade as a refreshing, citrus-y kick to the dish. For more ways to use lemon in your cooking, have a look through our collection of lemon recipes
When Brazilian-born chef Marcello Tully started his career at 14, he may not have anticipated working on the starkly beautiful island of Skye - but then he probably didn’t expect to be crafting some of the most exquisitely refined Scottish-influenced food on the planet, either.

Pour over the marinade and leave for at least 30 minutes
Arrange the marinated salmon on the skewers, using around four pieces per skewer
