  • You can customize the spices and herbs according to your taste preferences.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftover kebabs can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, you can either grill them again for a few minutes or microwave them until heated through.
  • Serve the kebabs with fresh pita bread, hummus, tzatziki sauce, and a side of tabbouleh salad for a complete meal.
