Fast & Easy Dinner: Salmon Polenta Skewers

Fast & Easy Dinner: Salmon Polenta Skewers


During the hot summer months, no meal is quicker - or more tasty - than delicious skewers. There are hundreds of varieties, but seafood skewers come together much quicker than meat skewers because no overnight marinading is necessary. For tonight's dinner grill up a batch of ham-wrapped salmon pieces with zucchini, red pepper, and polenta chunks. A simple sauce of store-bought Italian dressing and sundried tomato provides a moist, juicy flavor. Ready in less than 20 minutes, this recipe is a must make - perfect for any busy weeknight. To get the recipe,



Salmon Polenta Skewers
From The Nest

1/4 cup Italian dressing
1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato pesto
4 deli ham slices, each cut into 4 strips (about 1 inch wide)
1 pound fresh (or frozen, thawed) salmon fillet, skin removed, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
8 zucchini slices (with peel), cut 1 inch thick, halved crosswise
16 polenta cubes (1 inch size)
16 red pepper pieces (1 inch size)
8 bamboo skewers (8 inches each) soaked in water for 10 minutes

  1. Combine dressing and pesto in small cup. Set aside.
  2. Wrap ham strips around fish pieces.
  3. Thread fish and next 3 ingredients alternately onto skewers. Place on large plate.
  4. Brush skewers with pesto mixture.
  5. Preheat gas barbecue to medium. Cook skewers on greased grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally, until vegetables are tender-crisp and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
