1/1 Photo of Tunisian Harissa
Dreamer in Ontario's Note:
Rub this fiery Tunisian chile paste on meats or fish before searing or grilling, or stir a small spoonful into some mayonnaise for a sandwich spread with a kick. You could also mix a dollop into butter and toss with steamed veggies or couscous. The hotter the chiles, the hotter the harissa, so use sparingly to taste. From wholefoodsmarket.com The prep time does not include the 20 minutes needed to rehydrate the chiles.
