Kebab is an extremely popular meat dish. This recipe gives kebab an extra flavour and juice because all the ingredients are marinated and then cooked to perfection at the same time. Kebab is best served with salad and pita bread or with fried potatoes.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
