  • 2 tbsp Parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plus extra

    for asparagus)

  • 1 1/4 lbs Wild Caught Salmon Fillet (sliced into 1

    inch cubes)

  • 2 Lemons (sliced into thin rounds)
  • 8 Barbecue Skewers
  • 6 cups Asparagus (trim woody ends off)


  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the parsley, sesame seeds, black pepper, sea salt, red pepper flakes, maple syrup and olive oil. Mix well. Add the salmon pieces and toss well to coat.
  • Grab your BBQ skewers and slide on a piece of salmon, followed by a folded lemon slice. Repeat until all ingredients are used up and several kabobs are made.
  • Toss asparagus in a splash of olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Place kabobs on one side of the grill and asparagus on the other. Grill both for about 3 - 4 minutes per side, or until salmon flakes with a fork. Remove from the grill and divide between plates. Enjoy!


  • Time Saver: Chop the salmon and add it to a zip lock baggie with the marinade. Store in
    the fridge up to 1 day.
  • Wooden Skewers: Be sure to soak the skewers in water for at least thirty minutes prior to use.
