Serves: 4

 

Hands-on time: 15 minutes

 

Total time: 15 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

 

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, divided

 

4 tsp olive oil, divided

 

1 tbsp tandoori seasoning (TIP: Look for all-natural brands, and check the ingredient list to ensure that it has no added coloring or salt.)

 

1 lb boneless, skinless center-cut salmon fillets, cut into 1-oz cubes

 

2 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

 

1/2 tsp ground cumin

 

Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

 

3 tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint leaves

 

1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

 

EQUIPMENT

 

4 wooden skewers, soaked for 5 minutes

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tsp oil and tandoori seasoning. Add salmon and toss to coat. Thread 4 pieces salmon onto each skewer and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake skewers for about 8 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.

 

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high, heat remaining 2 tsp oil. Add zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Stir in cumin and continue to cook for about 2 more minutes. Add remaining 2 tbsp lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in mint.

 

Divide salmon and zucchini among serving plates and serve with yogurt for dipping.
