Ingredients

  • 400g skinless, boneless salmon portions, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 250g mini roma tomatoes
  • 1 yellow capsicum, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon drained capers, rinsed
  • 50g butter, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill leaves
  • Steamed basmati rice, to serve
  • Baby spinach, to serve

Equipment

  • You'll need 8 pre-soaked bamboo skewers.

Method

  • Step 1
    Thread salmon, tomato and capsicum onto skewers. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle with lemon pepper.
  • Step 2
    Heat remaining oil in a small saucepan over high heat. Add capers. Cook, shaking pan, for 1 to 2 minutes or until they are crisp but not browned. Reduce heat to low. Stir in butter until melted and foamy. Remove pan from heat. Carefully stir in lemon rind, lemon juice and dill (sauce will splatter). Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  • Step 3
    Heat chargrill pan or barbecue chargrill on medium-high heat. Cook skewers, turning, for 4 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Serve skewers with rice and baby spinach and drizzled with caper sauce.
