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.
2 medium yellow onions
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice
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.
