Shishlik (Israeli Skewers)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Pneuma

Popular in Israel and you can use any meat, beef, or lamb. Usually prepared without any veggies on the skewers and best served with salads and pita. Preparation time assumes that the meat has been cubed. Yield depends on how small the meat is cubed

My version of this is using fresh parsley please, nice boneless chicken thigh chunks, additional spices, like sweet paparika, a little someting hot like chipoltle morita, or harrisa mix, some cilantro, and a bit of cumin in the marinade. Serve with tomato cukecumber tiny cubed with fine chopped parsely and salt and lemon juice salad. Nothing beats.
