Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 310
These are served in every restaurant in the Middle East. You can easily make them at home and make them taste just as good, if not better. Don't substitute sour cream for the yogurt, as the yogurt is a meat tenderizer.

Kofta Kebabs

Rating: 4.5 stars 419
These kebabs have 6 different kinds of spices; the first time I smelled them I knew immediately that I had to find the recipe. The most affordable way to purchase the spices is in bulk at either a health food store or an Asian or Middle-Eastern market. They are very good! Serve with yogurt, flat bread, lettuce, tomato and cucumber.

Grilled Salmon Skewers

A delicious skewered salmon appetizer that won't have you missing your own party to prepare. Simply marinade in a simple sauce, thread them onto skewers, and toss them on the grill. Easy and delicious! (Note: Be sure and soak wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.)

I invented this recipe for a quick dinner. I only marinated the chicken for one hour, but I am sure if you marinate longer, it would taste even better.
