25 Min


10 Min




1 c
plain yogurt
2 Tbsp
fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp
tomato paste
1 Tbsp
fresh garlic, minced
1 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
2 tsp
brown sugar
1 tsp
fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 tsp
ground coriander
1 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
ground turmeric
1/2 tsp
ground cardamom
1/2 tsp
red chili powder (this is indian chili powder and it is extremely hot; therefore, you may want to reduce the amount if you don't want this much heat.
salt and pepper
1 lb
piece salmon (skin removed and cut into 20 chunks about 1 inch each)
1 small
orange bell pepper, cut into 16 equal pieces
1 small
red bell pepper, cut into 16 equal pieces
vegetable oil (for the grill)
lemon wedge (for garnish)
long wooden skewers (if wooden, soak overnight)

Directions Step-By-Step

For the marinade, whisk the yogurt, cilantro, tomato paste, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, brown sugar, coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, chili powder, salt and pepper together until well blended.
For the skewers: Thread the salmon pieces and peppers onto the skewers, using 5 pieces of salmon for each skewer and 4 each of the peppers, alternating them so the peppers are between the pices of salmon. Place them in a dish that will accommodate them in a single layer and pour over the marinade. Turn the skewers a few times, making sure they are well coated, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat an indoor grill or a barbecue grill to medium-high heat. Oil the grill, remove the skewers from the marinade and sprinkle them with salt. Place on the grill and cook 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Skewers are done when the fish is firm and slightly charred.
