10 Best Kebab Recipes If you ask us, kebabs are the perfect hors d'oeuvres for your dinner parties. Did you know that the word kebab is derived from an Arabic word 'Cabob' which means to burn or char.

It is a traditional entree made with minced meat and mild spices. Kebabs are known to have originated in the Middle East. They are one of the most popular grills around the world. Serve as appetizers or wrap away your food-on-the-go, you just cannot ignore a serving of lovely, succulent kebabs.

Quick tips -  Stain-less steel skewers are preferable than wooden ones. In case you use wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 20 minutes before using them. Apply some oil on the skewers to help you slide off the meat or veggies with ease. For the authentic taste a charcoal grill should be used if not then the gas grill does the job as well.

Grill, bake or fry! Here's our checklist of the 10 best kebab recipes which we think are a must try!
