How to prepare Baked fish skewers

To prepare the baked fish skewers, first clean the prawns by gently removing the head 1, the carapace 2 and the legs, then make an incision above the back with a smooth blade knife, so as to extract the black thread of the intestine 3.

Cut the swordfish 4 and salmon 5 into cubes of about 1 inch (3 cm). Transfer the fish to a bowl and season with the chives 6.

Pour the orange juice 7 and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper. Mix gently with your hands and let it rest for 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, take a zucchini and slice it 8, then cut them in half, thus obtaining a crescent shape 9.

After marinating, start assembling the skewers 10 by skewering the various parts of fish and zucchini 11. Place the fish skewers on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, sprinkle with sesame seeds 12.

Drizzle with a drizzle of olive oil 13. Bake in a preheated oven at 340°F (170°C) in a convection oven (or at 350°F (180°C) if conventional oven) for about 15-20 minutes, setting the last 5 minutes grill mode. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with a lightly chopped fresh parsley 14. Serve the baked fish skewers hot 15.

Storage

It is advisable to consume the fish skewers immediately, or store them in the refrigerator for a maximum of one day, inside a food container, then heating them briefly in the oven if necessary.

Once the fish has been marinated, freezing is not recommended.

Tips

To make the zucchini more roasted, once sliced into slices, they can be grilled and then used to compose the skewers. You can replace salmon or swordfish with fresh tuna and cuttlefish, it will not be necessary to vary the cooking time. For a more crunchy texture, bread the skewers in breadcrumbs or panko bread before baking. For marinating, dry white wine can be used instead of citrus fruits. When cooked, you can flavor the fish skewers with soy sauce, for an exotic note.
