In The Kitchen With Kanta: Shish kebabs

Headlines In The Kitchen With Kanta: Shish kebabs


In-The-Kitchen-With-Kanta-Logo (1)


Shish kebabs are a Turkish dish of skewered and grilled cubes of meat.  I love a good kebab, some of the best kebabs that I ever had were on the Greek Island of Corfu.  What I love so much about shish kebabs is the fact that you can use any meat; beef, pork, chicken or lamb and you can throw on a variety of vegetables like; onions, cherry tomatoes, peppers, or even pineapples.  Marinade your kebabs with some delicious seasoning and you will have people drooling.  Then throw them in the grill or on the BBQ stand and there you have it.  It’s really that easy.  So if you want to try something new this summer, try this easy kebab recipe.

Prep time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Serves: 8 servings


  • 1kg of beef, cut into cubes
  • 2 bell peppers, any colour roughly cut into squares
  • 1 pack of cherry tomatoes, about 30
  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, and cut into cubes (optional)
  • 3 tbsps soy sauce
  • 2 tspn garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tspn paprika
  • Skewers (metal or wooden)


Marinade the beef – In a bowl mix the soy sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika and beef together.

Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add your peppers, and cook for 1 minute, just to blanch.  Drain and set them aside.

Preheat the grill to a high heat. Thread the beef, peppers, tomatoes, and pineapples onto the skewers in an alternating fashion.

Lightly oil the grill rack. Cook the kebabs in the grill for 10 minutes, or to desired “doneness”. Turn them half way through.  You can also cook these on the BBQ stand.
You can also add some red onions, for extra flavour, blanch them slightly like the peppers.



These kebabs are great on their own as a starter or you can serve them with rice and a Greek salad, and an ice cold beverage.  Enjoy!!

  1. I do not understand kebabs and therefore I do not like them. Why should you have those ingredients on the skewer? How must you eat them? Why must you eat them like that? And so on…

    The only part I like about this recipe is the serving with ‘an ice cold beverage’..!
