Looking for supper on the table in less than 30 minutes? Start some rice, make the marinade/salad dressing, cut up veggies for the skewers and the salad bowl and make these fish souvlaki!
Start with about a pound of firm-fleshed fish like cod, halibut, snapper or even salmon. Cut the fish into 1" chunks. Make a quick marinade of flavourful olive oil, fresh lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. If you want to make a Greek salad to accompany the fish, double the marinade ingredients and put half in a salad bowl to become the dressing.
Fish Souvlaki (click for printable, bonus fish taco marinade here too!)
1 lemon, juiced
¼ cup olive oil
½ teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, pressed
salt and pepper to taste
Thread the fish onto skewers, alternating with grape tomatoes and squares of peppers. I usually use metal skewers but you can use bamboo skewers if you soak them beforehand.
|Ready to be broiled or grilled|
Broil the skewers, brushing once with the marinade and turning them after 5 minutes. Cook them for a total of 10 minutes. The skewers can also be grilled on the barbecue. Serve them with a grinding of pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
