Celebrate Summer with Kababs!

Whether you call them kabab, kabob or shish kabob...who doesn't love them? You can put anything you want on a kabab including meat, vegetables or fruit! In Western culture, a kabab is made by skewering pieces of meat and or vegetables and then grilling or frying them. Kababs are a flexible and popular food item, and they often appear at barbecues and other outdoor events as they make entertaining festive and fun. They can be easily assembled ahead of time, grilled to perfection in minutes and there's little clean up after the meal. We've even made them on our George Foreman© Grill!

Many cooks make kebabs on a grill, which is an ideal cooking surface. As the food cooks, the fat renders away into the fire, and the kabab acquires a smoky flavor which some people find quite enjoyable. It is also possible to make kababs in a frying pan, typically with a thin layer of oil to lubricate the food while it cooks. More health-conscious cooks sometimes bake their kabobs.

Vegetarian kababs can be made with all vegetables, or ingredients like tofu. If you are making kababs for a mixed group, you may want to cook the vegetarian food first, or cook it on a separate part of the grill.

Kababs are a great way to celebrate the upcoming Summer season. Why not host a kabab party where everyone assembles their own? Firing up the grill means you can mingle while you cook, and they're a smart choice because they can be prepped earlier in the day.  We've included several kabab variations; grilling time chart and even included an easy fruit kabab recipe for kids.  Get those grills warmed up & enjoy!
