What is Kebab?
Kebab or kabab, can be translated into English as the Shish kebab, is actually a dish or a meal which consists mainly of meat (chicken, beef, fish, lamb, goat or even shellfish) which is then skewered into a bamboo stick and grilled. Aside from meat, various types of vegetables such as chopped tomatoes, large bell peppers, and others, are also added for those people who preferred it that way or those who are just fond of eating vegetables or vegetarians.
Kebab is usually served with vegetables over a bowl or plate full of rice, or accompanied by bread. You can dip it into a sauce such as on a cacik, a Turkish sauce, and served on a bamboo skewer or on a serving plate. It has two most common types and those are the ones called barg (a grilled meat of that of a lamb, beef or chicken in a style inspired by the Persian cuisine) and koobideh (a minced meat from a lamb, beef, or chicken and usually served with the combination of parsley and some onions).
