Shish kebab[1] (Turkish: şiş kebap) is the Turkish cuisine version of skewered and grilled meat.[2][3] The term shish kebab has a history of over one hundred years in English.[4] Probably the best known Turkish dish outside Turkey,[5] it is generally made of lamb (kuzu şiş)[6] but there are also versions with beef or veal (dana şiş), swordfish (kılıç şiş)[7] and chicken meat (tavuk şiş or şiş tavuk). A traditional Turkish dish,[8] it may be considered a kebab variant, although it is more similar to shashlik of the Caucasus region.[9] (Shashlyk is the Russian word for şiş kebap.[10]) In Turkey, şiş kebap and the vegetables served with it are grilled separately, normally not on the same skewer.[11]
