That's a pretty unusual marinade recipe for a shashlyk. For one thing, Shashlyk is a Georgian dish. They hardly had any access to Olive Oil and mostly cooked either on pork fat or with sunflower oil. The onion is usually cut and seperated into loops and then threaded on the skewer with the meat. In my opinion, the best results are with lamb or pork. White wine works as a great marinade with a splash of white vinegar, minced onion, parsley, salt & pepper, and perhaps a little bit of lemon. Another GREAT marinade (only works for PORK) is Kefir (cultured milk, like very soft plain yogurt) with all of the above ingredients. Good luck!!
We enjoyed this so much. I did change it a little. I had shoulder chops with the bone. They were kinda thin. I decided not to skewer them but just marinated them in the marinade. I then grilled them to slightly less than medium rare. The marinade was perfect and the meat was tender and wonderfully flavored by the charcoal. I plan to make this whenever lamb goes on sale :-) Thank you for a great recipe. Oh, I served this with grilled veggies and rice.
