Villa Jerada Shawarma Spice Blend $10.95

A Levantine technique of marinating and cooking grilled meats, shawarma—which means to turn—is a popular and delicious meat preparation used throughout the Middle East.

This shawarma spice rub is based on a Syrian family recipe and hand-blended in small batches to enhance the rich aromas of the spices.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Grilled meat is an obvious perfect pairing for this spice blend, or broiled skewers— a bit of a roasty caramelized char works well with these flavors. It’s lovely as a seasoning for roasted or sauteed veggies—cauliflower, potatoes or other tubers, onions, summer squash and the like. Or, add to dressings for bean salads or make a spiced dip from yogurt—adding in fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, parsley and dill. We love adding 1 1/2 tablespoons for the dry spice in our Kidney Bean Salad with Spiced Vinaigrette and Herbs, 1 tablespoon to our Beef and White Bean Stew with Tomatoes and Dill or incorporate into our Israeli Hummus.
