Fish is kid-friendly when threaded onto skewers. You can substitute any meaty, firm-fleshed fish or peeled and deveined shrimp for the salmon.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat broiler, with rack in top position. In a medium saucepan, bring potatoes to a boil in salted water and cook until tender when pierced with a knife, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, thread 3 pieces salmon onto each of eight 6-inch wooden skewers. Place skewers in a single layer on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold foil over exposed areas of skewers to prevent burning.

  • Broil salmon until opaque throughout, about 6 minutes, flipping once. Remove from oven and drizzle with honey.

  • Drain potatoes. While still hot, gently smash each potato with the back of a spoon to flatten slightly and place, along with spinach and butter, in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Serve salmon skewers with potatoes and spinach.

Cook's Notes

While the potatoes are still hot, use a spoon to crush them. The exposed surface area will soak up the butter and seasonings.

This was just voted "The Best Dinner Ever" by my 7-year-old. We did sub shrimp for the salmon--be careful when salting it if you use shrimp--they're salty already. I wasn't too sure on the honey drizzle, but it was really good. Yum!
