how to reheat shawarma in microwave


Reheating shawarma in the microwave is a quick and convenient way to enjoy leftovers. Here’s how to do it:

Ingredients and Equipment:

  • Leftover shawarma
  • Microwave-safe plate
  • Microwave-safe cover or microwave-safe paper towel


  1. Place the leftover shawarma on a microwave-safe plate. If the shawarma is stacked or layered, try to arrange it in a single layer to ensure even heating.
  2. Cover the shawarma with a microwave-safe cover or a microwave-safe paper towel. This helps trap steam and prevent the shawarma from drying out during reheating.
  3. Microwave the shawarma on medium power (50%) for about 1-2 minutes. The exact time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave and the quantity of shawarma you’re reheating.
  4. After the first minute, check the shawarma to see if it’s heated to your liking. If not, continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until it reaches your desired temperature. Be cautious not to overheat it, as that can make the meat dry.
  5. Once the shawarma is heated through, carefully remove it from the microwave (it will be hot) and serve immediately.
  6. Optionally, you can add fresh toppings or a drizzle of your favorite sauce to enhance the flavor before serving.

Reheating shawarma in the microwave is a convenient way to enjoy it as a quick meal. However, keep in mind that microwave reheating may not maintain the same level of crispiness as when it was freshly prepared. Nevertheless, the flavors should still be delicious, and it’s a great way to enjoy your leftovers.
