  • 1 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 ½ lb. skinless salmon fillet
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

#1 Lite it up.
You will want the coals to be white hot, and cooked down a little bit so that the skewers can rest on the wood of the grill. About 30-40+ min. depending on outside temperature.

#2 Mix Marinade.
Mix together all marinade ingredients into a bowl. Top with fresh ground black pepper to your liking.

#3 Dice it up.
Cut red onion, zuchini, & pineapple into chunks about 1in. In size. De-skin salmon and slice into 1in. chunks. Chop cilantro for garnish.

#4 Stack it up.
Skewer in order: salmon, pineapple red onion, zuchini- making sure the total length of the skewered fare fits within the width of your burnie grill (6-7"). Pour half marinade into pan, then place kabobs on top. Drizzle rest of marinade on top and turn kabobs back and forth until well covered with marinade.

#5 Cook on coals.
Burnie should be cooked down a bit, with white hot coals at this point. Cook 2-3 kabobs at a time- place them directly on coals with skewer ends sitting on tree wood, out of direct heat (so that you can handle).

Turn each kabob every 30sec, cooking for about 5min total time on coals. Baste with leftover marinade. Control flames/flare ups with water bottle.

Total cook time should be about 20mins. Once each kabob is finished, place into dish or wrap in foil. Top with cilantro and serve immediately.
