A wrap is a type of sandwich alternative made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling. It is basically a shawarma but not exactly (please no further questions, let’s just enjoy this biko! thank you…hehehe!)

Suya on the other hand is the standard Nigerian street side food. And as a suya lover I have tried everything: Suya & Ijebu Garri (Cold water + plenty sugar), Suya & noodles, Suya & bread and the original recipe: suya & onions + tomato.

But this time, I tried the suya wrap and it was equally amazing and to me it is a healthier alternative (there are veggies in it…duh!) anyways, here’s how to make a delicious and easy Suya Wrap.

What You’ll Need

  • Lettuce
  • Carrot
  • Cabbage
  • Onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Mayo or Hummus
  • Shawarma Wraps
  • Suya (Beef or Chicken)
  • Toothpick


Before you begin, create the veggie filling:

– Choose your veggies as desired.

– Soak the veggies in vinegar and water. Leave to stand for about 6 mins then wash thoroughly.

– Cut your veggies (feel free to add or take out as you please), then grate the carrot. Mix all together with mayo or hummus to create the perfect filling for wrap.

1. Pre-heat the wrap in a pan.

2. Place on a clean surface and start to fill. Place a leaf of lettuce first to create a good bed, then layer on the suya, followed by the filling. Be careful not to overfill so as to ensure that it wraps..literally!

3. Finally place your nicely cut onion rings on the layer then wrap.

4. Hold firm by tucking in the sides and steadfasting with toothpicks.

5. Garnish and serve.
