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!
