Lamb Shawarma is a fast and flavoursome dinner which is great when you are on the go. Casual and easy, this is a great meal for those nights when your family are coming and going. Quick to throw together and portable, so it can be eaten on the run. Or place on a large plate in the middle of the table and let everyone make their own.
It’s tasty and very satisfying and the perfect way to use leftover lamb! It is also fantastic served with Twisted Tabouli (page 129 from Summer TABLE). And for a gluten-free option, put the lamb and toppings in a crisp iceberg lettuce cup.
Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds used in African, Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine. You can find tahini in your supermarket, usually where the organic foods are kept. Sometimes it is called hulled or unhulled tahini.
Shred warm lamb and sprinkle with ground harissa.
In a bowl, mix dressing ingredients. The sauce might get ‘clumpy’ or separate, but just keep stirring and it will come together. Season with salt, taste and adjust to your liking.
Remove the bread from the oven and lay lamb, tomato, onion and parsley down the middle of the bread. Spoon over dressing, wrap and enjoy!
