This bright and simple recipe can be done during warm months when you can grill outside or on your stove top using an iron skillet.

An iron skillet is a heavy pan with or without grill lines on it perfect for cooking meat, fish or vegetables. And for getting that grill flavour without the grill when you’re cooking indoors.

You can substitute any other kind of fish or vegetables you like in this recipe.



  • 500 grams fresh salmon
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 yellow zucchini
  • 1 green zucchini
  • Pack of whole, button mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Soak six to eight wooden skewers in a cup of water for about ten minutes or so.
  2. Chop salmon into 1-inch cubes. Chop all other vegetables into large pieces. Keep mushrooms whole.
  3. Place the vegetables and salmon on the skewers one at a time to create the look of a rainbow!
  4. Meanwhile, place a iron skillet on medium heat. Alternatively you can use your grill, barbecue or a non-stick pan on the stovetop.
  5. Cook the skewers for about 10 to 15 minutes until salmon and vegetables are cooked through.
