Shawarma kebabs, in case you’re not familiar with them, are very similar to Greek gyros and Turkish doner kebabs. Shawarma kebabs are very popular in my area and also in takeaways in many town centres.
In thousands of takeaways across the country, beef, chicken and lamb are marinated and then placed on a rotating spit. The meat is shaved off with a large electric knife and then served in fresh naans topped with salad, hot sauce and/or hummus.
Why restrict Shawarma kebab eating to late night bingeing when quite frankly they may not be appreciated. Make Shawarma kebabs at home and impress your friends with that post night out taste!
I don’t have a large spit nor the need to cook as much meat as the takeaway so I decided to downsize this recipe a bit. You will need metal skewers and a good barbecue for best results.
Note: It is a lot easier to slice the chicken for shawarma kebabs into discs if you place the chicken breasts in the freezer for about half an hour.
Make the recipe your own:
In my recipe below for shawarma kebabs I use chicken. If you prefer you can replace the chicken with beef, pork or lamb as all would would just as well.
Choose your favourite brand of hot sauce to drizzle all over the shawarma kebabs and then add garlic sauce too if you like it? Top with as much healthy salad as you choose and let all the flavours mix together. Beautiful!
