3. the importance of the meat marinade: Shami marinade and its secrets

The meat marinade plays a crucial role in the production of shawarma. The Shami marinade in particular has its secrets. Among other things, it consists of a mixture of spices such as cumin, coriander, cinnamon and pepper, which give the meat an intense flavor. Garlic and lemon are also added to give the meat a fresh and sour note. The meat is marinated in the marinade for several hours or even overnight to allow the flavor to penetrate deep into the meat. The Shami marinade ensures tender and juicy meat, which later develops a delicious aroma when grilled. It is important that the meat is drained well before grilling so that it does not lose too much liquid. You can also adapt the Shami marinade as you wish, for example by adding other spices or changing the proportions. Some people like it a little spicier and add chili, while others prefer a milder taste and use fewer spices. A tip for a delicious shawarma is to brush the meat with olive oil before grilling to get a crispy and flavorful crust. Served with fresh flatbread, salad and a delicious yogurt sauce, shawarma is the perfect dish for a relaxed dinner with friends or family.

5 The role of the spit: traditional techniques and craftsmanship

The spit plays an extremely important and indispensable role in the production of delicious shawarma. The traditional method involves using a large skewer made of high-quality metal, on which the leanest and juiciest meat is skewered. As soon as the meat is skewered in a vertical position, it is continuously turned over the blazing fire. This ingenious technique ensures that the meat is cooked absolutely evenly, as it is always exposed to the pleasant heat from all sides. As for the result, it is absolutely breathtaking. The continuous turning of the meat allows the excess fat to be gently pressed out of the meat and drip off, resulting in a shawarma that is both juicy and crispy. The artisan skill lies in turning the spit at the optimum speed and height to ensure that every piece of meat - from the outside to the core - is cooked in perfect harmony and develops a beautiful golden-brown crust. This traditional technique is essential for the authentic taste that a shawarma must have. This is a centuries-old method that makes it possible to perfectly capture the delicate texture and rich flavor of each shawarma.

7. precision in the cut: the art of cutting shawarma

Cutting shawarma is an art that requires precision. The first step is to remove the grilled meat from the spit. It is important to cut the meat evenly and thinly to achieve a tender texture and optimum flavor distribution. The cutting technique varies depending on the type of shawarma. For chicken shawarma, the meat is cut into thin slices, while thin strips are preferred for lamb shawarma. It is important to keep the knife sharp in order to achieve clean and precise cuts.

8th variety on offer: from chicken shawarma to lamb shawarma

Shawarma is known for its variety and offers a wide selection of meats. Chicken shawarma is a popular variant that is often chosen because the tender, juicy chicken meat harmonizes perfectly with the spices and flavours of the shawarma marinade. However, there are also other options that can delight the palate. For example, lamb shawarma offers a slightly stronger, spicy note and is ideal for those who like more intense flavors. For those looking for alternatives to meat, there are also vegetarian and vegan shawarma variants prepared with vegetables or plant-based proteins.
