  1. Combine salt and fennel seeds in a mortar and pestle and pound until fine. Stir cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric, and garlic cloves into the salt mixture and continue grinding to form a thick paste. Stir in harissa sauce and tomato paste until combined.
  2. Combine ground lamb and the spice paste together with a fork in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Form sausage into patties. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties until no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the patties.

We didn't like the flavoring at all. I made it twice, first with lamb and them with a chicken/turkey/beef mix. Something in the spice mix that we just didn't care for.
