Our Harissa Paste is made with chilies vine-ripened to peak flavor perfection and flown to our facility to make each hand-crafted batch from scratch. But, when the chilies run out, so does the Harissa! We use the same recipe that the Zamour tribe of North Africa has passed down from generation to generation (thank you, Grandma!). Fresh chilies? Yes! Fresh garlic? Yes! Preservatives or additives? Ewww! No! That isn't very authentic. Zamouri Spices proudly presents our own authentic Harissa - Moroccan Chili Paste. We have created our own special blend of fresh roasted peppers picked at their peak to bring you an outstanding experience.
But: what is Harissa?
Harissa,a fiery paste, is popular throughout North Africa. In Morocco, it is served as condiment or dip at the table in a small dish with a spoon. Harissa Paste is often stirred into tagines and couscous to emit its distinct chili taste and intense slow burn. It pairs well with all meats - chicken, beef and lamb - for grilling or roasting. Soups and stews are given a little kick up in flavor by adding as little as a teaspoon. In Tunisia and Algeria, it is often stirred into salads and cooked vegetable dishes to give a characteristic red color. We recommend adding to casseroles, saffron-flavored fish soups and stews. Add as a base for poached eggs. Use in your favorite recipe or as a hot sauce to spice up your favorite foods (such as scrambled eggs).

burger. Better yet, add it to ketchup,
yogurt, or mayonnaise for a zesty condiment.
it as a rub on your favorite meat. One
year, we used it on our Thanksgiving Turkey at the company party, and it has
been requested that way every year since!
some on your eggs. You have never tasted
a better scrambled egg burrito and will probably end up ditching the siracha and
just a dab in your Alfredo or Marinara sauce to make your pasta sing. This idea was created with little Miriam
Zamouri was bored of her “garden spaghetti” (sauce made with whatever is
growing in the garden). She put a
teaspoon in the sauce and that is how she makes it every time now.

Hummus is easy to make from scratch, but plain store-bought will work.
