Kabobs are such a fun way to spice up an ordinary meal! Without the addition of the skewers, this meal would simply be a lemon salmon with roasted vegetables. Of course, if you do not have skewers than it will still be absolutely DELICIOUS!

Personally, I think it’s delicious when the salmon and lemon kabobs have a lightly browned coating to add a slight crispy texture. It compliments the tenderness of the salmon perfectly!

As easy as this recipe is, the lemon slices and salmon may want to play a fun game with you … I highly recommend cutting thicker slices of lemon to prevent them from falling off the skewer. In the same matter, use a thin spatula to quickly flip the salmon skewers, if you cook them on the stovetop. This will help to prevent them from sticking to the pan and falling off, as well. Another hint is to cover the pan, as you cook them on the stovetop, to trap in the moisture that’ll keep them nice and tender.

The vegetable kabobs can be swapped with your favorite veggies! The majority of my family loves mushrooms, tomatoes and brussel sprouts, so I used those for the majority of the kabobs. On the other hand, I usually make a few where I will swap out the mushrooms with bell peppers to please the ones who don’t like mushrooms. You could even add sweet potato slices, broccoli, cauliflower, beets and so on.
