Grilled Rosemary-Salmon Skewers

Healthy Eating - If you can find (or grow) them, use sturdy rosemary branches, stripped of leaves, as skewers for these Italian salmon kebabs; they’ll add a subtle, smoky flavor that hints of pine.

Yield: 4 servings, 2 skewers each Total Time: 30 minutes Prep Time: 30 minutes To Make Ahead: Prepare the skewers (Step 2), cover and ...
