Harissa is having a moment! It’s the latest fascination of spice-obsessed foodies.
It has North African roots, combining the flavors of smoked chili peppers, garlic, caraway, coriander, and cumin to perfectly season meats, fish, soups, stews, and eggs. Our Harissa Infused Olive Oil provides an easy way to incorporate these flavors into your favorite recipes.
The smoky flavors of Harissa make it a great ingredient during grilling season. Use the Harissa Marinade recipe above to give extra flavor to chicken, fish, shrimp, flank steak or skirt steak before grilling. Try using it to make scrambled eggs, use it in your chili, brush it on grilled cheese sandwiches for extra kick, and add a drizzle to finish your soups, stews and beans. It’s also fantastic with roasted vegetables like cubed sweet potatoes or cauliflower. Sauté your favorite veggies in Harissa Olive Oil for an easy, flavorful side dish. We love it on green beans, snap peas, zucchini, and eggplant. Add a teaspoon or two to sour cream or Greek yogurt to create a cool yet spicy sauce for chicken wings, lamb chops, or grilled shrimp skewers.
