Souvlaki 7 Ways: the souvlaki truck has arrived!
Souvlaki—commonly recognized as marinated meat on a stick—is one of those dishes that is pretty much without limits when it comes to the kind of food you can skewer, grill (or broil), and enjoy. There’s a version for every food-lover’s palate. If you can cube it, you can souvlaki it!
As a Greek, I can attest to the fact that lamb (the Greek meat) really rocks when it comes to souvlaki but this meat can be expensive, so Greek food trucks and restaurants don’t always offer it on their menu. The remedy is to turn your kitchen into your own souvlaki truck by grilling up this Greek meat and making the neighbors jealous!
For a twist, try alternating cubes of lamb and pork on a skewer. The pork will absorb some of the fat from the lamb, keeping it moist, and the lamb will taste a bit leaner.
Not a meat lover? Go fish! Seafood: swordfish, shrimp, scallops, cod, halibut…cast your net and sea how deliciously it grills! Swap lemon zest or thyme for the oregano, marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, skewer, and grill.
I hope you enjoyed my food-truck-inspired souvlaki post. Stay tuned for upcoming segments on uniquely Greek foods and ingredients!
