Busy times call for easy, quick and healthy meal options. How about having your entire meal roasted on a stick, no clean up! Shish kebab are actually a Turkish dish, “shish” refers to the stick and “kebab” is the meat.They have traveled around the world so many varieties of shish kebab exist. Meats such as chicken, lamb or beef are preferable as the kebab. My cooking class last week was so interesting when we learned the origins of this simple way of cooking and tried several kebab recipes. All you need are wooden skewers that can be purchased in the grocery store. Soak the skewers for 25 minutes before stacking them with meat and vegetables. Marinating the meat over night is best so the flavors meld and crate a delicious taste. Try this soon, Bon Appetit!
