Homemade Middle Eastern food is diverse, simple, healthy and beautiful to behold on a table. Practice time-tested favorites and contemporary spins alike with culinary authorities and recipe developers Nadia Zerouali and Merijn Tol. Their latest book, Souk, brings these recipes to life with history, anecdotes and photos from their storied adventures in food. These zingy grilled chicken kebabs are molded around scallions — nature’s skewer. 

Chicken kebabs aren’t traditional, but that’s never stopped us before! The added nuts make the dish exciting, and using spring onions (scallions) instead of skewers is fun and, most importantly, tasty.
