Ever wonder where the idea for skewers came from? Well, we can trace them back to the Middle East, Eastern Mediterranean, and South Asian regions of the world, where fish, meat, and vegetables were – and still are – pierced through with a stick and roasted over a heat source – quite often, a spit. The ancient Greek bard Homer was one of the first to mention skewers – or shish kebabs, as they’re also commonly known – in his great works. Later, skewer cooking is said to have been taken up by people living in Central Asia as well as those of the former Mongol Empire.
Skewers and kebabs refer to meat, vegetables, and fish that are cooked over flames; they are often served as is – on sticks, or on plates, or in salads and sandwiches. Originally, lamb was used for kebabs, but other favourite meats these days are fish, pork, goat, beef, turkey, and chicken. Kebabs are still very popular in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as in South Asia. They are also a fun dish to be served all over the world.
