“I find it great with lamb chops, my BBQ butterflied leg of lamb, chicken and vegetarian dishes and as a flavour base for any casseroles or stews where a fresh zing is needed. Especially good cooked with a vegetable bake and in guacamole.”

Directions

  1. Place the chiles, garlic, ground coriander, cumin, salt mint and cilantro into a blender or food processor. If the mixture is too dry, add a bit of the olive oil. Store in a bowl or jar in the refrigerator with the remaining oil poured in a layer over the top.
  2. Make sure that the surface is covered with a layer of oil each time you use some. When you run out of Harissa you can use the oil to add flavor to fried or baked dishes.

I come from a tribal area of Morocco eating harissa all my life - I know a good one! This is the best I have ever tasted (sorry mom.....)

Wonderful recipe, very forgiving! I modified ingredients based on what was available, and came out excellent, probably not quite as spicy as the original, as the bird chilies weren't to be found. Makes a great sauce for pork or chicken when mixed with plain yogurt, can be used as a stir-fry sauce, and was yummy just plain on top of smoked oysters. One thing that seemed nice was to toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a dry skillet before blending. Next time I will add the chilies after blending the rest so that the sauce is slightly chunky instead of pureed.

Very tasty and traditional african condiment. I used a large handful of rehydrated del arbol peppers as these are easy to find in the grocery store. I sauteed the garlic first in a bit of olive oil and add chopped fresh mint after removing from the heat. Then blended all the ingredients in my chopper. Slather on steaks before grilling/broiling and mix into mayo to make a killer steak sandwich.
