Kushikatsu (串カツ) is a Japanese-style of deep-fried kebab. In Japanese, kushi (串) refers to the skewers used while katsu means a deep-fried cutlet of meat.

Kushikatsu can be made with chicken, pork, seafood, and seasonal vegetables (asparagus, broccoli, potato, carrot, shrimp, squid, scallop, beef, cheese, and lots more). These are skewered on bamboo kushi; dipped in egg, flour, and panko; and deep-fried in vegetable oil. They may be served straight or with tonkatsu sauce or karashi mustard, based on your preferences.

Kushiage or kushikatsu are great appetizers, a down-to-earth, working-class snack that goes perfectly with cold beer. As they are easy to eat, Kushiage are also considered the perfect meal for parties.

Kushiage is a popular dish in Tokyo, it being served as well in countries like the United States, Germany and Great Britain.
