Quick Reference

A shashlik is a version of the kebab which originated in Georgia, to the east of the Black Sea, and spread from there to western Asia and eastern Europe, including Russia. Its basic ingredients are virtually identical to those of the Turkish shish kebab on which it is based—chunks of mutton threaded on skewers—and even the word, Russian shashlýk, comes ultimately from Turkish şiş, ‘skewer’.
