Cooking instruction summary:

With a sharp knife, cut all the peel and white pith from the lemons and discard. Working over a medium bowl, cut between the membranes to release the lemon segments in to the bowl. You want only the membranes remaining. Squeeze juice from the membranes into the bowl and discard the membranes. Strain juice into another bowl to remove seeds. Here's a great little tutorial from bon appetit, if you've never done this before. Combine lemon segments, 1 tablespoon strained lemon juice (reserve the rest for another use), cucumber, 2 tablespoons scallions, and chile in a small bowl. Mix well. Stir in sugar and salt and set aside.Place chicken in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. In a mini processor or blender, puree 1/4 cup cilantro, yogurt, vegetable oil, garlic, coriander, and turmeric. Pour marinade over chicken and toss to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. (The marinade can be made 1 day ahead. Just cover and chill until you're ready to marinate the chicken.)Heat outdoor grill or stove top grill pan to medium-high heat. Thread chicken onto 6 skewers. I used 9" long sturdy wood skewers that I soaked in water for 30 minutes before grilling. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste. Place chicken kebabs on grill until you see nice char marks and then rotate them. Continue to rotate until all sides are nicely browned and the chicken is cooked through. This should take about 8 minutes or so. Transfer kebabs to plates. Spoon the Meyer lemon salsa over the chicken or serve it alongside. Garnish with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro and 1 tablespoon scallions.
