Harissa PasteRegular price $16.95
***Currently Harissa Paste Available in our Ultimate Tagine Sets and Premium Tagine Sets*** Zamouri Spices only uses fresh chilis and when it is sold out, we have to wait for the new chili season before we have more. We apologize for this inconvenience. However, we still have a few Harissa Paste available.
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.
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).
