Dish history

Kebabs make practical finger food, especially in outdoor situations like barbecues or at parties: thanks to the sticks they are easy to eat without a plate and can be easily transported from one place to another. This recipe wants to be an alternative to the most common meat-kebabs, a delicious fish-based course than can be served as an appetiser or as a 'secondo', depending on the quantities. Have fun cooking and feel free to add your personal touch to the recipe!
