These kebabs have lovely summer flavors! Fire up the grill and enjoy!
Kebabs originate from Middle Eastern cuisine. The most popular style of kebab cooked in the United States is the shish kebab. The shish kebab is a dish where small cubes of meat and sometimes vegetables are cooked or grilled on a skewer. Kebabs are very versatile dishes. They can include different kinds of meat, poultry, and fish.
After university I had roommates that loved to grill. Between the four of us there were three grills; one gas grill, one charcoal grill, and one wood smoker. It was lovely. We had barbecues during every season except for winter. My specialties for these parties were smoked pork and kebabs. I always received compliments on my kebabs and people often asked me for my marinade recipes. I hope you like this recipe. Please enjoy!
