In my language, Harissa is a wheat soup that contains chicken cutlets (or beef), similar to a porridge.

Hmmm, interesting. Is that an authentic Australian dish?

Shakshuka is great! We had it for the first time recently. it's an egg, tomato sauce, some kind of chili mixture. I made Shakshuka with meatballs and we both loved it. You can also use nduja, as well as other forms of chilies instead of harissa.

The ingredients in Harissa differ throughout the Middle East. Some of the mixtures are spicier than others.

Did you work there years ago? Or recently??
I was there in 2016 and never felt scared. I was mostly in the area of Tunis. I had a car to drive myself around and lived on the economy and the people were very nice. But I stayed close to the coast and never went south into the desert, where I was told things were more dicey.

And Medtran49 - thanks for that recipe, I'm going to make it soon.

You're welcome. I used the recipe in the butternut, cashew cream recipe to make the harissa and used a combo of dried chilies. The shakshuka recipe was really good and is definitely a make again for us.

Mix with a little mayo, slather on salmon, then broil.

Use it in a marinade on grilled shrimp.

I don't dislike it. But I find that I like other premixed pastes, condiments/spices. So I'm unlikely to purchase it again.

While it's much like sriracha, it's just a bit different, much thicker. I add to soups and any dish with tomatoes, sauce etc. Use as a spicy dip, or topping on vegetables, pasta and pasta salads, chicken, etc.

The brand I buy is Mina.

If you buy it, what do you use it for...?
I use it to spice up a marinade and toss it with par-boiled root vegetables before roasting. I serve the vegetables with steamed couscous.

Love roasted vegetables, you've given me a new way to spice them up
