    Micmac's Note:

    Harissa is a common ingredient in North African recipes. Didn't see a recipe for it here so I'm sharing one I found somewhere.

    5. 5
      Store in a jar and top off, covering the surface of the paste with a layer of olive oil.
    6. 6
      Whenever the paste is used you must always top off with olive oil making sure no paste is exposed to air otherwise it will spoil.

      Variation: To make a hot harisa, use 4 ounces dried guajillo chillis and 1/ 2 ounce dried de Arbol chillis.
    8. 8
      Note: To make salsa al-harisa, that is, harisa sauce, used as an accompaniment to grilled meats, stir together 2 teaspoons harisa, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons water and 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves.
