Ingredients

  • 1½ tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped, divided
  • pounds thick wild salmon, skin off, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (or Sriracha sauce)

Instructions

  1. Soak 6 wooden skewers in water for 2 hours.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the curry paste with oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, honey, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon cilantro. Add the salmon cubes and toss to coat. Marinate for ½ hour.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sambal oelek (or Sriracha sauce), remaining lime juice, remaining cilantro, and season with salt.
  4. Heat stove-top grill pan or outdoor grill on medium-high heat.
  5. Remove skewers from water. Thread the salmon onto 6 skewers, leaving 1/4 inch between the cubes. Grill over moderately high heat, turning carefully, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Serve the kebabs with the spicy aioli sauce.


Notes

Adapted from: Food & Wine. Sambal oelek can be found at specialty Asian markets and select local grocery stores. Can substitute with Sriracha sauce. These kebabs go great with a side of sautéed, shaved brussels sprouts.
