I got this recipe for Middle-Eastern spiced chicken skewers from Bon Appetit magazine sometime last year. I didn’t save the magazine so I don’t know what they thought about this recipe. So you’re stuck with hearing what I think about it.
I think it’s terrific. Pretty too. Pomegranate seeds make everything pretty. Which is similar to the way that tahini makes everything delicious and yogurt makes everything healthy. Making this recipe terrifically pretty and healthy too. I’d say this was a fresh, modern interpretation of Middle Eastern cuisine. It features an interesting mix of seasonings known in Turkey as Bahārāt, which includes cumin, oregano, and dried mint. Bahārāt is the Arabic word for ‘spices’. So you might get confused when you Google around for the word. What makes this version typically Turkish is the addition of mint into the mixture.
So that’s what I think (and know) about this recipe.
