Cook Time: 20 min
- Whisk together 2 teaspoons olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon juice and zest. Add salmon or chicken and let marinate for about 10 minutes.
- To make tzatziki sauce, stir together yogurt, lemon juice and zest, dill, oregano, cucumber, honey and pepper.
- Toss vegetables in remaining olive oil and assemble each skewer with 3 pieces of salmon, alternating between vegetables.
- Heat grill-pan or sauté pan. Over medium heat, add skewers to pan, cover loosely with foil. You may have to cook in two batches of 4 skewers. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
- Serve immediately with a dollop of tzatziki sauce.
Safety Tips: If using wooden skewers be sure to soak the skewers in cold water for about 30 minutes prior to grilling to make sure they don’t burn.
Get the Kids Involved: Assembling skewers and making tzatziki sauce are safe and fun steps to involve kids in the cooking process.
Cook Once, Eat Twice: Double the chicken and use the left-overs to make Zippy Southwest Chicken Fajita Salad.
