Sheesh Tawook Marinade

This is an all time summer Favourite. But can be eaten in winter too, I mean who makes up these rules except for us!! Gooooo enjoy that marinate guys!! Instead of grilling these baby skewers on a BBQ, shove it in the OVEN!

You can eat this with salad, in a wrap, with rice, grilled veg! It goes with everything. Sheesh Tawook is really popular in the Middle East. It originated in Turkey and spread all the way to the south.

The three key ingredients in the marinade are; garlic, lemon, and yoghurt.

With measurements you add;

half a head of garlic (or more if you love garlic)
1 squeezed lemon
3 tbsp of yoghurt
tsp of salt
2 tbsp of tomato pureé
1 tsp of Black pepper
a drizzle of olive oil
(I like to add dried oregano or thyme to the mix too)

Blend all this together in a bowl or a mini chopper.

I prefer diced chicken breast, but once again in the summer time I add this marinade to chicken legs and thighs.
Mix the marinade into the chicken breasts and cover to put in the fridge for cooking next day.

And there you have it guys. A sheesh tawook marinade. I love making my own homemade garlic sauce to go with this which will just make you lick your fingers after it (also for vegans). That recipe will be posted soon :).
