  3. Coat grill rack with olive oil; reduce grill heat to medium. Place kabobs on hot grill rack and cook 12 to 16 minutes, or until salmon turns opaque throughout and internal temperature of salmon reaches 145°, rotating kabobs ¼ turn every 3 to 4 minutes. Remove kabobs from grill and place on large serving plate; keep warm.
