Yemeni grilled shrimp with fattoush salad
Soy Free, Low Calorie
The beloved Yemeni seasoning known as hawayij blends coriander and cumin with ground cloves, cardamom, and turmeric. Popular throughout the Middle East, it adds nuance to meats, fish, even coffee. Here, Chef Justine uses it to season shrimp to accompany her late-summer take on fattoush, the Levantine bread salad.
