(Lamb shish kebab)
Şiş kebap (Turkish) or Shish kebab is the Turkish cuisine version of skewered and grilled meat. It is generally made of lamb (kuzu şiş) but there are also versions with beef or veal (dana şiş), swordfish (kılıç şiş) and chicken meat (tavuk şiş or şiş tavuk). It may be considered a kebab variant, although it is more similar to shashlik of the Caucasus region.
