Salmon Kebabs with a Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

Taken from - Sprouted Kitchen

This is one that I ran across and decided I needed to immediately try it, unmodified. The cucumber yogurt sauce reminds me of something you get with pita-based sandwiches. My only problem with this dish is the lemon didn't serve a purpose, other than to make the other items more kebab-y. Adding a second vegatable, tomatoes maybe, would have given the dish a little more flavor.

Ingredients

Kebabs

  1. Salmon fillets, cubed (don't get them skinned)

  2. Lemons, sliced

  3. 2 zucchini

  4. Extra virgin olive oil

  5. 1 tablespoon maple syrup.

  6. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  7. 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Yogurt sauce

  1. 2 garlice cloves

  2. A large cucumber, english preferred

  3. 3 tablespoons fresh dill

  4. 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves

  5. 1 cup greek yogurt

  6. Lemon zest

Steps

  1. Prepare all of the ingredients for the kebabs. Cube the salmon, slice the lemon and zucchini.

  2. Prepare the kebabs. Alternative the salmon, zucchini and lemon.

  3. Mix the oil, lemon juice, maple, salt, and paprika. Brush on the kebabs.

  5. Add the dill, mint, and yogurt and give it a few more turns.
