Shish kebab

Shish kebab anyone?

Meat on a stick is enjoyed throughout the world, but no one does it with more finesse than the Franco-Greek grill masters on the Rue de la Harpe and Rue St. Severin in the Latin Quarter in Paris.

Almost every storefront in this warren of medieval streets features a charcoal or wood burning grill and a museum quality selection of shish kebabs. The following photo shows prawn, salmon, and crab kebabs (right) and pork chop, veal, and merguez sausage kebabs (left). Do you have some great kebab ideas? Please tell us about them on the Barbecue Board.
