 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.

    Salmon is one of my absolute favorite meals, but I’ve been looking for a lot more recipes to mix it up and keep from getting bored, so this looks both easy and yummy. I”ll have to keep the “spicy” part on the mild side to keep from upsetting my sensitive stomach though.

    Hope to report back with the results this weekend.

    I know they say some seafood is okay during pregnancy, but I’m one of those people that hasn’t and will continue to not eat a single bit. This recipe sure is tempting though. Haha!

    I’m all about a recipe with apple butter in it! Yummy!

    We also have the same understanding of grilling in my household. Even when it’s nice, I do not grill because I really don’t know how!

      I know. I really should learn but….. yeah….. 🙂
