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 - 8  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.
