This tasty shish kebabs recipe is great for serving up at a party or feeding a load of friends, it is so simple to make and the tahini gives it that extra bit of taste.  Şiş, pronounced [ʃiʃ], is a Turkish word meaning “sword” or “skewer”. In the US, the word “kebab” usually refers to shish kebab. In Turkey, shish kebab does not normally contain vegetables, though they may be cooked on a separate skewer. It can be prepared with lamb, beef, chicken, or fish, but pork is not used.
