Fish Skewers with a Herby Marinade : Low Carb Barbeque Recipe


Listening to the UK weather forecast many parts of the country are going to have high temperatures over the weekend. Perhaps it's time for getting the barbeque sizzling? If you are looking for an easy barbeque recipe then this one is hard to beat. Fragrant fish skewers, marinated in lemon juice, garlic and green herbs, these succulent cod, salmon and king prawn kebabs taste incredible served straight off the grill...

Here is what you need for four servings:
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 lemons, 1 juiced and zested, 1 cut into wedges, to serve
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
handful dill, finely chopped
handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
400g (14oz) boneless, skinless cod loin, cut into 16 chunks
400g (14oz) boneless and skinless salmon, cut into 16 chunks
16 raw king prawns
16 bay leaves

Here is the method:
1. Soak 4 wooden skewers in water, so they won’t burn on the barbecue. Preheat the barbecue.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, dill
and parsley. Stir in the cod, salmon and prawns, season and put in the fridge to marinate for 1 hour.
3. Thread 2 pieces of cod, 2 pieces of salmon, 2 prawns and 2 bay leaves onto each skewer. Cook on the barbecue for 8-10 minutes, turning regularly, or until the fish and prawns are cooked through.
4. Scatter over the lemon zest and serve with the lemon wedges.

Did you know that growing your own mini herb garden maybe simpler than you think. If you have access to a bright window, herbs can be grown all year long, right on your kitchen counter. Even if you don’t have the space or time to tend to a garden, growing your own herbs can be an easy and affordable way to spice and brighten up your daily meals.

I love skewers. There's so many different kinds you can make. I've tried several times to grow my own herbs. But they all die after getting an inch or so tall. I have a black thumb.

Never thought to grow anything other than cress in an egg shell, what a good idea.
