Persian Kebabs with Salmon or Tuna

Adapted from The Legendary Cuisine of Persia by Margaret Shaida (Interlink)


Serve with rice with sliced almonds and a mixed greens salad with peeled cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh chopped dill, and a light vinaigrette.


Serves 6


5 (6 oz. each) wild salmon fillets or 8 (4 oz. each) albacore tuna medallions, cut into 1-inch cubes


Marinade
2 medium yellow onions

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice

½ tsp organic turmeric
Organic black pepper to taste


Basting sauce

½ tsp dried organic rosemary

1½ tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil or macadamia nut oil

1½ tablespoons tomato paste


  • Place the salmon (or tuna) in a non-reactive mixing bowl. Grate the peeled onions over the fish. Add the cup of lemon juice, turmeric, and pepper to taste; set aside to marinate an hour. (If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water.)

  • Make the basting sauce by mixing the 2 tablespoons lemon juice, oil and tomato paste in a small pan. Bring just to a boil and set aside.

  • Thread the salmon (or tuna) cubes onto thin skewers. Cook over hot coals or under a broiler, about 5 inches from heat source, turning once and basting a few times, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.
