This exceptional shish kebab uses firm fish or squid rather than lamb or beef. Fish require far less cooking time, so take care not to overcook. With a squeeze of fresh lemon, this recipe is simply great.

Seafood Shish
Recipe type: Seafood
Serves: 12 to 16
  • Marinade:
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh dill weed
  • 3 cloves garlic; minced
  • 1 medium onion; minced
  • 2 bay leaves; crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried hot chilies
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 pounds assorted firm fleshed fish and seafood, such as shark, swordfish, or giant squid
  • 1 lemon; cut in half
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Add the fish and turn over in the marinade to make sure that all are covered; refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  2. When ready to serve, thread onto skewers and cook as for Sis Kebabi.
