Saturday Sandwich 85: Shawarma

Shawarma is basically a kebab, meat grilled on a vertical spit and then sliced to fill a pitta bread. Tabbouleh and a tarator sauce are added to the Shawarma along with cucumber and/or tomato slices.

As we don't have a vertical spit we just grilled some lamb chunks for our Shawarma.

Here's a recipe if you want to try it yourself --> http://allrecipes.com/recipe/214029/lamb-shawarma/


Ignore the mess we made with the cous cous :D

We really enjoyed the lamb, all the marinade ingredients had made it tender and very tasty. The cous cous was a nice addition to the pitta bread filling up the gaps nicely. The tarator sauce we made didn't work out very well, it was more of a paste than a sauce and had a bitter flavour from the tahini. Overall the sandwich was good though and JD was sorry we only had one each!
