Shawarma (Arabic: شاورما) also spelled shawurma or shawerma, is a
Levantine meat preparation, where lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, veal, or
mixed meats are placed on a spit (commonly a vertical spit in restaurants),
and may be grilled for as long as a day. Shavings are cut off the
block of meat for serving, and the remainder of the block of meat is kept
heated on the rotating spit. Shawarma can be served on a plate (generally
with accompaniments), or as a sandwich or wrap. Shawarma is usually eaten
with tabbouleh, fattoush, taboon bread, tomato, and cucumber. Toppings
include tahini, hummus, pickled turnips, and amba.
Related dishes in the region include Turkish döner kebab and Greek gyros.
Our Shwarma spice mix includes garlic, white pepper, Spanish paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, and turmeric.
