    Chef Shadows's Note:

    The fire engine color of this sauce is a sign of what is to come; harissa is hotter then hot. Once it is given a chance to sit for a while, the flavors of the lemon, cumin and chiles mix to make a wonderful sauce. Used sparingly it adds zest to stews, soups, and casseroles, it is also great served with lamb and beef. Added to dips it kicks things up just a tad. Be careful it is HOT!

      Delicious (but handle with care!). I can buy Harissa here as well mixed with cream cheese to be used as a sandwich spread-it costs a fortune and is not so versatile. I am very happy to have found this recipe! Thank you so much for posting.
