Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Soak the skewers in water and remove the salmon from the freezer to partially thaw.
  2. Chop the basil finely with a sharp knife.
  3. Cut the almost thawed salmon length-wise into 1/2" (1.5cm) wide pieces and mount on the skewers.
  4. Roll the skewers in the chopped basil and pepper. Then wrap the salmon skewers with the sliced prosciutto.
  5. Cover the skewers in olive oil and fry in a pan, oven, or on the grill. Alternatively, place skewers in the oven and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 15 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and prosciutto is crispy (Note: turn skewers over halfway).
  6. Serve with the mayonnaise or a hearty salad and a rich aioli.

Tip!

Frozen salmon pieces work very well. It's easier to thread them on the skewer when the fish is still a little bit frozen.

    Loved these. I don't use a sauce with them, but I did wet the salmon in a 50/50 water lemon juice prior to rolling. Trick on the grill was high heat. They cook so fast, though, that it's a bit of a waste of time to grill unless you're cooking something else on the grill with them. I assume they would cook just as fast in a pan.

    Nice recipe. Thanks. I personally prefer with Bacon, I found that Prosciutto is too salty to my taste. :)

    That's a great substitution idea!
