Salmon and Vegetable Oven Kebabs

This content was last updated on February 25, 2020

These savory salmon kabobs offer the great flavor of barbeque without having to fire up the grill. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, an anti-inflammatory fat linked to heart health. Colorful vegetables and a light, Mediterranean marinade add healthful phytochemicals and delicious flavor. Broiling in the oven helps cut down on the carcinogenic HCAs typically produced when grilling meat.
