Here’s a tasty way to get your recommended daily serve of vegetables up that requires very little effort.
Feel free to add any other veggies that you like such as mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, or yellow squash.  You could also add some cubes of haloumi as that works well on the BBQ.
Why not also try switching the salmon for some prawns, tofu, chicken or beef if you prefer.
Grilling these skewers on a BBQ or non-stick frying pan will give you a lovely result.
Be sure not to have the heat too high – otherwise the fish can quickly become overdone.


  • 600g skinless salmon, cut into cubes
  • ½ cup of pesto (we love this home made version)
  • 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes, whole
  • 1 yellow capsicum, cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into chunks
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, to serve


  • Marinate the salmon in the pesto overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
  • Thread the salmon onto some metal skewers (or use pre-soaked wooden skewers), alternating with your veggies to give a nice colourful look.
  • Heat your BBQ up to medium and spray with olive oil.
  • Cook slowly for around 8 minutes on each side, taking care when turning it over not to break the salmon pieces as they are quite delicate.
  • Serve with a wedge of lemon.
