My whole family has been on a healthy kick for a while now. I just love making meals that taste delicious but are oh soooo healthy! Around the Christmas season, my wonderful hubby Matt and I went to our local big chain bookstore and went through the cookbook section. I saw a new cookbook that I really wanted... The Looneyspoons Collection  by: Janet and Greta Podleski. They are two crazy fun sisters (and I do mean crazy in the most fun and kindest way possible), that combine their individual talents: i.e. cooking and nutrition. Anyways, to get back to my story, my husband saw that my eyes were lighting up while flipping through and in a very sneaky way bought the cookbook for me! When I went home, I flipped through every last page of the book. This was a page turner for me because I just loved how they put all of this nutritional information or trivial tidbits into each recipe, but they do it in a fun way! This is the first recipe that I tried from their fun cookbook and it turned out to be a hit! You cannot go wrong with lime and cilantro on fish! You can either grill or broil the skewers. It's a real crowd pleaser too. On a side note here: I highly recommend this cookbook. These two sisters certainly know what their doing when it comes to home cooking :)

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey mustard
  • 1 tbsp barbecue sauce or ketchup
  • 1 tsp lime zest, grated
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp each: ground cumin, ground coriander, salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 lbs (680 g) boneless skinless salmon fillets, cut into chunks
  • 4 (12-inch) metal or wooden skewers (wooden skewers need to be soaked in water first)

1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients into a small bowl. Combine it well. Place the salmon chunks into a large resealable plastic bag, then pour the marinade into it. Turn the bag several times to coat the salmon completely. Place it into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to marinade.

2. Preheat the grill or broiler to a high setting. Remove the salmon chunks from the marinade (reserving the marinade in a bowl). Thread each piece onto the skewers.

3. Brush the grill rack lightly with oil OR broil the salmon for 3-4 minutes per side. Make sure to brush the reserved marinade often while cooking. You will know when the salmon is fully cooked when it is slightly pink in the centre. Do not overcook the salmon. Serve warm along side a pasta salad or oven roasted veggies. Enjoy!
