It depends what you mean by skewered.  The kebabs you get in Fish and Chip
shops are slices of lamb and/or chicken served in pita bread, usually with
salad.  They are cooked on a spit, but I'm not sure that counts as skewered.
You describe only one type of Kebab(a Shish kebab).  According to my
dictionary, the word 'kebab' comes from Hindi 'kabaab', which in turn is
derived from Turkish 'kebap', meaning 'roast meat'
