Grilled shawarma is simply the best meal you can buy at Mediterranean or Middle-Eastern restaurants. Every time I’ve ordered it, I’ve enjoyed it. The following blog post will guide you through grilling the perfect shawarma and show you how to order from a restaurant.
To make this perfect summer meal, you will need fresh vegetables and fruit, chicken or fish, ground meat (such as beef or lamb), shrimp, and spicy hues of preserved lemon, hot pepper, and harissa. You may also add some eggs, avocado, or a hard-boiled egg to the mixture for an extra boost of nutrients. In short, you will need a combination of vegetables, protein, and starch to make this meal work. The combination of chicken, beef, and shrimp is also popular, as it offers a change from the usual vegetarian options.
You should use fresh or frozen vegetables and fruit, as they will most likely be available at your local grocery store. If you use frozen vegetables, you may want to cook them first to bring out their flavour; otherwise, they can stay raw when frozen.
How To Make It
To make the Grilled Shawarma, you need to follow a few steps. First, prepare the vegetables and fruit to grill. You should choose the option that requires the least time, as you will have a lot more time to spare once you make the meal. Second, prepare the protein component. You may want to consider cooking a chicken breast or fish fillet, which will take less time than searing a steak.
Third, make the dressing or sauce. We have opted for a preserved-lemon dressing. But you may use your favourite herb, spice, or pickle to give the taste of summer to your meal. Fourth, assemble the meatloaf or meatball and place it on a skewer or long stick, along with the other items you may have chosen to grill. Fifth, light up the barbecue or grill pan and wait for the food to be cooked.
Grill the meat over high heat until the juices run clear for best results. Sixth, serve the food with a side of coleslaw or salad or some grilled garlic bread.
As you may have guessed, Grilled Shawarma is more challenging than it seems. To start with, you must have all the ingredients before cooking. This is especially important for a recipe that calls for preserved lemon. To keep the taste fresh, you should always use freshly squeezed lemon juice. Even if it means waiting a little while to make the perfect meal.
Following these simple steps will result in a juicy steak, a T-bone, or other cuts that are easy to chew through. The chicken will be deliciously juicy, with a crispy exterior; the fish will be moist and flaky; and the vegetables will be charred on the edges but still retain their crispness.
All these benefits make this meal perfect for summer and any other time of the year. The sky is the limit as far as variations go. You may toss in some tomatoes or other vegetables for more textural variety. Also, occasionally grill some halloumi cheese or mushrooms to put on the menu. Whatever your pleasure and however you choose to order it, you will create a masterpiece in no time.
