Fish Kebabs with cumin scented rice and avocado salsa.

So I may have surpassed myself. This was AMAZING. 

Dietitian UK: Fish Kebab 2

We went to a BBQ on Sunday and these are what I had planned to make and then I ran out of time. The idea had been pinging around in my head for a few days, today it unravelled turning into a salsa and tasty rice too. If, like me, you are not keen on BBQ food why not try these lovelies out next time. I know I will be popping them on the BBQ this summer for sure.

Miss K “Yum Yum, more avocado please”

Hubby “Tantilising on the tastebuds” he was trying to be clever I think 😉

This came about as I was once again looking for a new way to get more fish into our meals. I used a mixture of white and oily fish in this recipe, both worked well. The salsa in this particularly made it for me. Really zingy and it just brings the whole meal together.

Top tips:

  • Make sure you cut your veggies chunkily enough so they can be threaded onto the skewers, but not so chunky that they take forever to cook. Our courgettes were undercooked, fortunately we like crunchy veggies in our house.
  • You can make the skewers in advance ready to cook later on, but make sure you do not throw the left over marinade away.
