Grilled Salmon Kebabs


Grilled Salmon Kebabs

This is an overdue post, but I simply had to write one about this. Every time I catch a fellow blogger’s recipe getting featured on Buzzfeed, I wonder as to what all one needs to do, to get a placing in the list of recipes being featured over there.

Did they send a basket of freshly baked cookies to the editor? Or did they bake a huge red velvet cake with double cream cheese frosting or are you supposed to be somehow related to the editor? Childhood buddies, perhaps?

I wonder if MK would ever get featured over there. I had dreams of having my recipe on Buzzfeed. As cliche as it sounds, but some dreams do come true, if not all. My dreams of being a size zero has not materialized even after 20 years. Moving on now.

When I got an email from the editor stating that she is going to publish the Chicken Casserole recipe, I could not trust my eyes. I didn’t even dare to talk about it, for the fear of jinxing it. Yes, a face-palm would be appropriate here.

Eventually when the article was published, I let loose. I squealed like a 5 yr old child who entered Toy Rus. I always had dreams of having my recipe(s) featured on Food-buzz and it finally happened. It might be something that is a regular occurrence for some of the bloggers, but it was my first time and the first time is ALWAYS special. ♥ You guys can check out the article here.

February was quite a milestone for MK. Besides Buzzfeed, MK recipes were also featured on redjit and a few other websites as well. Hip hip hurray!

By the way, do you guys realize that this blog is now Mayakitchenette instead of Maya-kitchenette? If you didn’t notice, please look at the address bar now ↑. Yes, we took away the dreaded dash. High time I guess. Dashes in domain names are supposed to have lower positing in Google’s SERP. Thanks Hardi, for making it happen. I know I have been behaving like a mad woman, let on loose. Every time I discover a pin not working, I panic and eat his brains. Thank you for making me sane at times and making me more insane at other times. Kindly edit the remaining 5000 pins soon alright!

While he is setting things on Pinterest, please shift your focal point on this dish, which is an extremely easy job.

So everyone… wave and say hi to this succulent palate of Grilled Salmon Kebabs!  These chunks of salmon with pineapples and peppers made our dinner looked all fancy despite the fact that we were dining in our messy house with boxes all around, which was far from fancy.

Grilled Salmon Kebabs

Chunks of salmon were simply marinated in a simple sauce, threaded onto skewers with some pineapple and peppers and tossed on the grill. Easy and delicious! This is the kind of dinner that makes me feel-oh-so-good and I know you are gonna love it too. Your face gonna have that special kind glow after you lick this plate clean.

Clean eating? Hell yeah!

This Grilled Salmon Kebabs are sweet & juicy and incredibly easy to prepare and can be served with almost everything. From asparagus to salad to baked potatoes and even rice. These kebabs were really tasty and it is a fuss free way of cooking fish. I cooked this over an electric grill, you can do grill this over a barbie too. Bet it would be more delicious!

I made a simple dip to go along with these salmon but you don’t really have to. The salmon is delicious on it’s own. I just thought that it would really look good to have a dip by the side. This is me, trying to be fancy.

Delicious grilled salmon kabobs that are easy to make and they are filled with omegas in every bite? Bring it on baby! Nom nom nom!
