Grilled Salmon Skewers with Melon Salsa

Ingredients
1
cup finely chopped honeydew and/or cantaloupe melon
1/2
medium yellow sweet pepper, finely chopped
2
tablespoons lime juice
1
tablespoon snipped fresh basil or cilantro
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
4
6 ounces fresh salmon fillets
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
2
cups hot cooked brown rice

Directions

  1. For salsa, in a medium bowl, stir together melon, sweet pepper, lime juice, basil, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and ground black pepper. Cover and chill until serving time or up to 2 hours.
  2. Slice salmon filets lengthwise into 1 1/2-inch wide strips. Thread each salmon strip accordian-style onto skewers. Brush with olive oil. Season with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and black pepper.
  3. For a charcoal grill, grill skewers on the well-oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place skewers on a well-oiled grill rack, cover, and grill as above.) Serve skewers on hot cooked rice topped with salsa.
