Inspired by the bold flavors of shawarma—meat cooked on a rotating spit—this spice mix invokes the enticing aromas of the classic Middle Eastern street food. A piquant blend of coriander seeds, cumin, paprika, turmeric, garlic and salt, New York Shuk's Shawarma seasoning serves as a short cut to elevating roasted vegetables, grilled meat and more.
This shawarma blend makes anexcellent dry-rub and we love combining it with yogurt to make a marinade for chicken, lamb or seafood—but it's not only for meat. Try coating tofu or hearty vegetables, like eggplant or cauliflower in a shawarma-spiked marinade before cooking. New York Shuk's Shawarma spice blend also makes a zesty base for stews and a simple sprinkle brightens up hummus and other dips.
