Turkey Shawarma- serves 4

This is a quick shawarma which doesn't have the complexity of the heavily-spiced version but is an excellent, tasty and very healthy alternative!


600g turkey breast, flattened and sliced (see picture)

1 tbsp garlic paste

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp mild curry powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil


  • In a bowl, combine the spices and garlic paste. Add the turkey and massage well.

  • Leave to marinate for 10 mins (the longer the better though).

  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil and add the turkey.

  • Fry for around 4-5 mins per side or until cooked through. 

  • Serve with chopped salad, hummus, tahina, salty pickles and olives and of course, some warm, fluffy pita bread.
