Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tsp oil and tandoori seasoning. Add salmon and toss to coat. Thread 4 pieces salmon onto each skewer and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake skewers for about 8 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high, heat remaining 2 tsp oil. Add zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Stir in cumin and continue to cook for about 2 more minutes. Add remaining 2 tbsp lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in mint. Divide salmon and zucchini among serving plates and serve with yogurt for dipping.

Soda that’s good for you? Yes, please! The key to making this gut-healthy drink is to start with a ginger bug. Similar in concept to a sourdough starter, a ginger bug is a fermented mixture of fresh ginger, evaporated cane juice and water, and it’s what gives homemade sodas a refreshing natural fizziness. The time it takes for the soda to fully ferment depends on the temperature in your home – if it’s warmer, 2 days should do it, but you might need up to 10 days if your home is on the cooler side.
