The hubs and I love to grill year-round. Even though it is fall, we still find ourselves creating recipes using the grill.
By “we” I actually mean I do all the indoor work, while he goes out in the cold and does the actual grill working.
The truth is in the details.
My husband will go to great lengths for really good food.
You don’t actually have to go out in the cold to make these salmon skewers though. They will cook perfectly either on an indoor griddle or an outdoor grill.
To make these sweet skewers, whisk up an Asian inspired marinade using Musselman’s Apple Butter as your secret ingredient. This marinade is low in fat and calories, thanks to the apple butter.
The salmon will need to soak in the Asian inspired goodness for at least thirty minutes.
Next stir together the simple three ingredient spicy yogurt sauce.
After at least thirty minutes in the fridge, the skewers come out of the marinade and go onto the grill.
After a just a few minutes of grilling on each side, you have a unique and delicious dish, pretty enough for guests but simple enough for a weekday meal.
The Musselman’s Apple Butter adds a rich fall flavor to your succulent salmon skewers.
The real truth is when the food looks this good, it really doesn’t take much effort to get my grill master outside, regardless of the season.
