Şiş Kebap, or Shish Kebab is a type of kebab with grilled meat cubes on a skewer. It’s typically served on a plate with vegetables on the side.

Shish is the most famous kebab variety consisting of pieces of meat on a skewer that is grilled over a fire. The dish originated with the nomadic tribes who used to marinate the meat in order to tenderize it and to get rid of the gamey flavors.

The marinades include any combination of lemon juice, olive oil, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, allspice, and various other spices. Authentic Turkish shish kebab is rarely prepared with vegetables on the same skewer, and it has been suggested by numerous food writers that grilling the vegetables and meat on a same skewer is a modern invention by Turkish restaurateurs to make the skewers look more visually appealing to customers.

The vegetables and meat should be grilled on separate skewers so that both are cooked for a proper period of time.
