Lemon and herb marinated salmon skewers

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

3
Pour over the marinade and leave for at least 30 minutes
4
Arrange the marinated salmon on the skewers, using around four pieces per skewer
