Harissa Spice Mix
We make a powder version of this blend that when mixed with equal parts hot water and olive oil, creates a great Harissa paste. We skillfully make this hard to find blend by blending red japone peppers, cumin, coriander, Hungarian and California paprika, garlic, salt and caraway.
Roasted red japone peppers, cumin, coriander, Hungarian and California paprika, garlic, salt and caraway
This is a fiery hot condiment that is as common as Louisiana Hot Sauce or Tabasco is in the States. It can be found on almost every North African table and is used on many foods. Traditionally, it’s used on kebabs, stews, soups, salads, bland vegetables, couscous, chickpeas and cooked meats like lamb, beef or chicken. Try it as a replacement for condiments like mustard if you like your sandwiches hot! Basically, you can use this blend anywhere you desire. You can make a Yemeni seasoning known as zhug that is similar to harissa by adding ¼ a tsp. each of ground cloves and ground cardamom to 3 tbsp. this blend.
