Grilled Salmon Kebabs

A new way to cook salmon!  Good thing this came along because I was getting bored.  The salmon had a nice hint of lemon, and the spice mixture is good.  Next time I would toss the salmon pieces with the spices and squirt with a little lemon juice (as I've described below).  This came out pretty well, but it still tasted a little too salmon-y for my taste.

Grill Salmon Kebabs
adapted from Skinnytaste

2 tbsp oregano
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 lbs salmon, cut in 1" pieces
2 lemons, very thinly sliced into rounds
olive oil cooking spray
1 tsp salt
lemon juice
skewers (if wood, soak them)

Heat the grill to medium heat and spray the grates with oil.  Mix oregano, sesame seeds, cumin, salt and red pepper flakes in a small bowl to combine.  In a larger bowl, combine the salmon with a splash of lemon juice and the spice mixture and toss to coat evenly.  Thread the salmon and the lemon slices (folded in half), alternating on the skewers.  Spray the fish lightly with oil.  Grill the fish, turning occasionally, until fish is opaque throughout, about 8-10 minutes total.
