The end of May unofficially heralds the beginning of summer — the perfect time to enjoy spending more time outdoors. Your very own backyard may be the perfect place to enjoy grilling and eating outdoors while spending time in nature with your family and friends. Get out there and soak up the sun while enjoying nutritious, brain-healthy food. 

This month’s recipes for our PreCODE and ReCODE members include Cauliflower Rice Pilaf, Lemon & Mint Chickpea Salad, and Seafood Shish Kebobs (recipe below.)

Seafood Shish Kebobs


It’s time to fire up that grill. Instead of burgers, opt for seafood shish kebobs to increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids that your brain craves. Feel free to use any KetoFLEX 12/3 approved seafood and veggie combination, cooked low and slow, for a delicious brain-healthy entrée. 

Yield: Four Servings


● 1.5 lbs salmon filets, must be wild-caught, cut into 1-inch cubes OR 1.5 lbs wild-caught prawns or shrimp, peeled and deveined
● 1 green pepper, cut into chunks
● 1 red pepper, cut into chunks
● 1 yellow pepper, cut into chunks
● 1 small red onion, cut into squares
● Sea salt
● Ground pepper

For the marinade:

● 1/2 cup high polyphenol extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
● 2 lemons, juiced & zested
● 7 garlic cloves, minced
● 1 tbsp thyme
● 1 tbsp oregano
● 2 tsp cumin
● 1 tsp coriander


1) Soak your wooden or bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes; this will prevent them from burning.

2) In a medium bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade.

3) Split the marinade between two bowls.

4) Place the seafood of choice in one bowl and the vegetables in the other.

5) Season with salt and pepper to taste and let it marinate for 20 minutes.

6) Thread the protein with the vegetables of your choice through your skewer.

7) Heat up your grill to a low temperature and arrange the skewers; grill covered for 8 to 10 minutes or until the fish or shellfish is opaque and starting to brown. (Be careful not to allow the seafood or vegetables to char to avoid advanced glycation end products.) Make sure you turn them once at the halfway point.
