SALMON & TOMATO SKEWERS with CHIMICHURI SAUCE
1 1/2 lb salmon filet, cut into 1 1/2 in cubes
16 cherry tomatoes
sea salt to taste
olive oil for brushing
1 lemon cut into wedges
4 long metal skewers, or 8 wooden skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes
1. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. Thread the salmon and tomatoes onto skewers.
2. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt lightly. Grill over moderately medium-high heat, turning once, until salmon is just cooked through, about 4-6 minutes. Also grill the lemon wedges.
3. Transfer the skewers to a platter and drizzle with chimichuri sauce. Serve right away with additional sauce and grilled lemon wedges.
1 bunch of cilantro
1/2 bunch of parsley
1 package (.75oz) of chives
1/2 of small chili pepper (more if you like it spicy)
1-2 garlic cloves
sea salt to taste
1/4 – 1/2 cup of olive oil
1 lemon juice
1. Chop the herbs, chili and garlic very finely with a knife, add into a bowl.
2. Add the fresh lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil. Taste and see if you need any more olive oil or salt. I start with 1/4 cup of olive oil and add more if I want the sauce to be more runny or not.
3. The sauce keeps in the fridge for about a week. Use on eggs, meat, fish, sweet potato avocado toasts and more.
