There is something about marinating food, threading it onto a skewer and grilling it that makes it instantly more appealing. We love finger food, and as we've said before, everything tastes better when eaten off a stick.

Kebabs are an especially beautiful dish because they're exceptionally versatile; you can kebab (can we please make that a verb?) just about kind of ingredient you have in your kitchen. From savory to sweet, there are so many foods to skewer on a stick and roast over a flame. We pulled together a bunch of our favorite savory versions below; you'll find snacks, salad, mains and a whole lot more. Happy kebabing!
