Kebab is a traditional Middle Eastern food dish made from a skewer of seasoned meat or vegetables grilled on an open flame. Kebabs are typically served with a side of tahini sauce, pickles, and warm pita bread to scoop up the sauce. The best kebabs are made from fresh, high-quality ingredients. In this post, we look at the best kebabs recipes.
I have searched the web for as many different types of kebabs as I could find, and have put them all together for you to use in your home. Each recipe uses a different meat type that is used throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East. I have tried to use lean meat cuts that are naturally low in fat so that you don’t need to buy any additional special ingredients.
These recipes make perfect dinner party appetizers or lunchtime snacks, and they can be made ahead of time so you can just throw them in the oven when your guests arrive. There are a variety of options available for vegetarian or gluten-free diets; so if you are one of these groups I have included some alternatives to each recipe. If your diet doesn’t allow dairy or eggs then just omit these ingredients from the sauce and pickle recipes, but if you do want them then make sure to buy raw milk or free-range eggs.
