Healthy salmon sosaties: A healthy kebab cooked by South Africans

When you start going on a healthier diet, fish is often added to your meals. Salmon is a popular fish which has a unique taste, especially when smoked. Salmon is also packed with protein and important oils which are good for your immune system and joints. Our healthy salmon sosaties combines tasty vegetables with healthy salmon pieces for a light snack or dinner treat.

The lemon juice helps tenderize the fish but also adds some flavour. Red and green peppers have loads of Vitamin A and other important nutrients, so make sure to have all of the colours there. Mushrooms add to the fibre and meatiness of the kebabs. Make sure that the skewers are a bit wet, especially if you’re going to cook them on the braai, but a griddle pan works perfectly. Each serving is only 276 calories.

If you love seafood, healthy food and South African cooking, try our healthy salmon sosaties. Meaty, healthy and colourful for the whole family.
