Shish Taouk is a popular Middle Eastern skewered chicken dish known for its brightness and zest. This vibrant blend, created by one of our favorite chefs from the region, @thevoicenotechef, combines herbaceous species (tomato powder, oregano, coriander, and garlic) with earthy black cumin and turmeric, creating a layered spice mix that's singing with flavor.
Mix your Shish Taouk spice mix with Greek yogurt and fresh lemon juice to create the best marinade for melt-in-your-mouth chicken kebabs. For added flavor and crunch, skewer on your favorite vegetables (we recommend onion and bell pepper). Serve with french fries, roasted vegetables, or a simple salad.
