Four Awesome Ways For You to Use Salami

So you’ve had a look through the Najma range and our Spanish Turkey Salami has caught your eye. You probably already have a few serving ideas floating through your head. Our salami makes for a great sandwich filling and it also works well as part of a tapas-style meal.

Those are both great ideas, but they’re also a little simple. Don’t get us wrong, you’ll still love our salami, no matter how you choose to eat it. But we know that some of you may want to get a little bit more inventive with how you serve it up.

That’s where we come in. Here, we’re going to give you just a few suggestions for how you can use salami in a bunch of interesting ways.

Salami Carbonara

The Italians love to serve Pancetta with their carbonara pasta. Unfortunately, that raises a few problems for those who follow the tenets of halal. Pancetta is a cured pork meat, which means it’s not permissible.

Happily, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on your carbonara dish. Our turkey salami makes for a great substitute for Pancetta. You still get that slice of Italian authenticity, but you get to enjoy it without being haram.

Salami Pizza

We’re sticking with the Italian theme here as salami makes a perfect topping for a tasty pizza.

There are all sorts of ways that you can go about this. Salami on its own works as a good topping. But you can also combine it with any number of vegetables to add a little extra flavour and perhaps take some of the bite out of the meat.

We’d recommend using a tomato sauce instead of a BBQ one here. But in the end, it’s really up to you.

Add it to Nachos

We’re heading over to Mexico for our next idea. Everybody loves nachos with a bit (or a lot) of melted cheese. But it’s that added spicy kick that really gets us going. Of course, we love to use Jalapenos to add that touch of spice, but salami can add to it and make the meal even more enjoyable.

For this, we recommend slicing our salami into smaller pieces and mixing them up with the nacho cheese. Of course, you could always sprinkle some of the meat on top of your nachos if you want to keep things simple.

Serve it with a Cheese Board

You have to be a little careful when selecting cheeses for a halal cheeseboard. Anything that contains the pepsin enzyme is off the table, as is cheese containing lipase derived from pigs or cattle that aren’t slaughtered in accordance with halal tenets.

Of course, that still leaves you with plenty of options for your cheese board. What we’re here to tell you is that salami makes a great accompaniment to your cheese. Try it with a slice of cheese and a cracker and you’ll see what we mean.

The Final Word

Those are four creative ways that you can use our Spanish Turkey Salami to spice up your meal times.
