Yogurt Feta Sauce

  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • freshly ground pepper

Souvlaki Salmon Skewers

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets cut into 1-inch cubes (if salmon has skin, leave it on, it will peel off easily after grilling)
  • 1 lemon sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds
  • 3 bell peppers sliced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 red onion sliced into 1 inch pieces
  • metal skewers 8-10
  • salt and pepper
  • To Serve:
  • Pita bread
  • Lemon wedges


Yogurt-Feta Sauce:

  • Place the feta cheese in a medium bowl. Mash with the back of a fork until it is in small, uniform crumbles. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir to combine.
  • Set aside.

Souvlaki Salmon Skewers:

  • Pre-heat barbecue over medium-high.
  • Assemble skewers with a mixture of salmon cubes, lemon slices, and bell pepper and onion pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Spray barbecue with spray oil (don't be shy, you don't want the salmon to stick to the grill!).
  • Arrange the skewers on the grill, and cook with the lid down for 4 minutes.
  • Gently pry the skewers from the grill (the salmon may stick slightly, but should come off with a bit of teasing), and flip over. Put the lid down, and cook for another 4-6 minutes, until salmon is cooked through and flakes with a fork.
  • Serve immediately with pita bread and lemon wedges.
