  1. Mix the olive oil, the garlic, lemon zest, cayenne pepper and thyme in a shallow dish; season. Mix to coat the salmon in the marinade. Cover and transfer to the fridge for at least 1 hr, or up to 24 hrs ahead of cooking.
  2. If cooking under the grill, preheat to high. Thread the salmon onto metal or presoaked wooden skewers. Place on a foil-lined tray and grill for 8-10 mins, turning halfway, until just cooked. Alternatively, grill on a barbecue over a medium heat for 8 mins, turning halfway.
  3. Transfer the skewers to a serving dish and drizzle over the lemon juice.

Make ahead: The skewers can be prepared up to 24 hrs ahead.
