Salmon Skewers

  • 2 lbs. Salmon filet cubed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced

Cilantro Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr or yogurt
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  • In a medium mixing bowl, toss the salmon cubes with the olive oil, spices, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Thread the salmon onto metal skewers, alternating salmon pieces and lemon slices.
  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates well, or oil a grill basket. Grill the salmon skewers about 4 minutes per side, until just cooked through. Remove from the heat and rest before serving.
  • In a food processor or blender, combine the skyr/yogurt, avocado, lemon, cilantro, jalapeño, and olive oil. Process until smooth, adding water as necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve salmon with lemon wedges and cilantro sauce on the side.
