The weather is getting warmer and that means it is time to fire up your grill and start cooking outside! Grilling is such a hallmark of summer and warm weather and it is also a great way to cook some delicious foods. The char that you can get on the outside of a food when you cook it on the grill is unmatched- that unique flavor just can’t be beat! The high heat cooking also helps to make some nice, fast meals that you will love. Luckily, we have this great keto recipe for lemon butter grilled salmon kebobs that will have you looking forward to dinner all day. So get that grill heated and get ready to enjoy a delicious low carb meal!
We love making recipes that use salmon because it is not only keto-friendly but it is also flavorful and super healthy. Salmon is so good that almost all diets allow you to enjoy a filet of two. Why is salmon so great? To begin, it is high in omega 3 fatty acids which are a very beneficial fat that we should all be consuming more of. These fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and even decrease the risk of other diseases. Salmon is actually one of the few foods in the whole world that naturally has lots of omega-3’s so eat up! Your body will thank you!

Salmon is also a fantastic source of protein. While us keto followers need to make sure to keep our fat levels super high, we also need to make sure to get that protein! One 3.5 ounce serving of salmon has about 23 grams of protein so it checks that box as well! B vitamins are also high in salmon and are needed for energy production and to help with brain health- that sounds pretty important too!
Really, we could go on and on about the health benefits of salmon but what you really may be wondering about is our recipe. How to make salmon taste good? As we said before, we like to grill it! And here is how.
We marinate the salmon and the zucchini in a mix of lemon juice, butter, lemon zest, dill, and parsley. You only need to marinate the fish for a few minutes as it will soak up a lot of the flavors right away. Also, if fish sits too long in a lemon marinade, the acidity may start “cooking” the fish!
The marinated fish and veggies are then skewered on bamboo or metal skewers and grilled for just a few minutes. You want the fish and zucchini to have nice black grill lines to be sure you get that fresh, hot off the grill taste! After that, you are ready to eat! The whole recipe takes less than 20 minutes to put together and is full of tasty, perfect, summery flavors that we know you will enjoy.
Make these keto salmon kebobs part of your weekly summer dinnertime routine and, of course, tell us all about it in the comments below! We want pictures and stories about how this dish made your night! Enjoy.
