Harissa is a spicy and flavourful North African paste made from chili peppers, garlic, olive oil, and spices like cumin and coriander. Here are some delicious recipes that feature harissa:

  1. Harissa roasted vegetables: Toss your favorite vegetables (such as cauliflowers, carrots, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts) with harissa and olive oil, then roast in the oven until tender and caramelised. Serve as a side dish or over a bed of grains like mhamsa or couscous.

  2. Harissa grilled chicken: Marinate chicken thighs or breasts in a mixture of harissa, yogurt, and lemon juice and olive oil, then grill until cooked through. Serve with a side salad or roasted vegetables. Try the recipe with our new lemon and capers harissa

  3. Harissa hummus: Add a spoonful of harissa to your favorite hummus recipe for a spicy and flavourful twist. Serve with pita chips or fresh vegetables for dipping. For an intense flavour, use the Mahjoub Tunisian harissa paste

  4. Harissa roasted salmon: Spread a mixture of harissa and honey over a salmon fillet, then roast in the oven until cooked through. Serve with a side salad or steamed vegetables. We would recommend the Moulins Mahjoub sweet pepper harissa, which is mildly spicy and retains the texture of the peppers. 

  5. Harissa and aubergine dip: Roast a whole aubergine in the oven, then peel off the skin and mash the flesh with harissa, garlic, and lemon juice. Serve as a dip with pita chips or fresh vegetables. We particularly like the slightly smoked taste of the Mahjoub traditional harissa for this recipe.

These are just a few ideas for using harissa in your cooking. Feel free to experiment with different ingredients and flavor combinations to find your favorite harissa-based dishes!
