Ingredients

Instructions

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
2. In a food processor pulse together the juice of 1 lemon, olive oil, basil, and parsley.
3. Next, prepare the skewers: Cut the salmon into squares. Thinly slice the lemons. Thread 2 skewers through a square of salmon, follow with a folded slice of lemon, another hunk of salmon, a cherry tomato on each skewer, another piece of salmon, another slice of lemon, and end with a last piece of salmon.
4. Season with salt and pepper and brush the entire skewer with the basil marinade.  Repeat until all of the skewers are assembled and seasoned.
5. Place the salmon skewers on the preheated grill and let cook 2-3 minutes with the lid down. Rotate the skewers 45 degrees and cook another minute before flipping the skewers and cooking on the second side.
6. Once the salmon is cooked throughout, remove from the grill and serve warm.

Tips + Tricks

**Soak the skewers in water before threading them and wrap the exposed ends in foil so they do not burn on the grill.
