One of our new favorite salmon recipes! I thought maybe an ingredient was missing, since the recipe references "the marinade" but the first 4 ingredients are dry and are more like a rub than marinade. So I added a little olive oil to the plastic bag. Yogurt was very good, even without the pickled okra. I've saved the recipe to make it again!
Grilled Salmon Kabobs
Spice-crusted salmon teams up with the smoky crunch of grilled cucumbers. (If you think cukes are best saved for gazpacho and tea sandwiches, you're in for a delicious surprise.) A creamy yogurt raita, spiked with fresh dill and tangy bits of pickled okra, cools it all down.
