Put a spin on the beloved Middle Eastern classic by swapping meat for delicately spiced, flaky fish, that makes for a great DIY meal idea for a party of people.
With our busy lifestyles and a chaotic work life, lunch is the last thing anyone wants to put too much thought into every single day. While it is important to keep a check on making sure you eat right and have an adequate amount of nutrition, it is equally important to make sure that your body gets a balanced meal with all the essential carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. For most people who eat their lunches on the go, a salad bowl or a wrap becomes the obvious choice.
If we had to tell you that you can fix yourselves a quick shawarma, you’d think we’re joking. Who has the time to marinate and patiently grill meats and chop veggies when deadlines are looming over your head? Our take on the shawarma, which replaces meat with a healthier protein in the form of fish, takes only a few moments to put together and leaves you feeling satiated, while providing you with all the nutrients needed to keep you going through the day. Not only is this a phenomenal weekday lunch option, you don’t have to compromise on flavour either! Some components can be prepped beforehand and it’s only a matter of assembling everything when it is time to eat. Fish, essentially is a delicate ingredient that doesn’t need too much marinading or cook time. The potatoes can be cooked beforehand and stored in the fridge and so can the coleslaw.

Note: If you are packing this for lunch, ensure that you pack each component separately until ready to eat so that the shawarma does not get soggy.
