Used different ingredients. So *that's* how you marinate it! Second time around, I alternated cherry tomatoes and shallots between the pieces of meat. Getting the extra skewers lead -- counter-intuitively -- to a healthier meal. This is because a skewerful of meat is a deceptively large portion. The additions also improved the presentation and flavour. Next time, I will add some fresh green chillies to the overnight marinade. - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. My husband's family make kebab by omitting the lime juice and marinating the meat in yoghurt mixed with one minced onion. I also add a pinch of dried mint. We barbecue these with onion wedges and tomatoes and serve it with Persian rice. - 24 Jul 2008
Yoghurt is an excellent marinade. My husband was very doubtful, but it turned out wonderfully. We added some spices to this, cumin, I think. - 24 Jul 2008
