Tongue Lebanese Schwarma
Hey Bubba and Brutus- living over here in Bahrain (for the time being), I've developed a taste for Schwarma- a Middle Eastern version of a softshell taco, usually made with chicken or something very loosely defined as "meat". Very cheap- only about 400 fil (~1.00 U.S.). Here's my favorite recipie:

SCHWARMA SAUCE
1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 gloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon parsley, finely chopped (optional)
Dash of cumin

(For a spicy sauce, add a few drops of Hot Sauce or Japanese La Yu hot sesame oil)


MEAT SEASONING/RUB
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cardamom pods
1 teaspoon allspice
(If you want, you can substitute 4 Tbsp of Garam Masala seasoning in place of the last 4 ingredients)
Rub chicken with seasoning, set aside while your grill heats up.

Grill seasoned chicken thighs. Dice chicken, then serve in flatbread with tomatoes, lettuce, onions and topped with sauce.
