10 oz. Jar - Morocco
Harissa is a classic table accompaniment in North African cooking and at the Moroccan table. Mustapha's harissa is the gold standard and nothing sold in here in the USA can really compare.
Made mainly from Moroccan hot red chiles, red bell pepper, olive oil, a touch of tomato, oil, salt and spices. It is an essential accompaniment at the Moroccan table, and almost as ubiquitous as olives.
Mustapha's harissa is served alongside couscous and tagines, it has an unforgettably intense, slow burn that will spice up any dish - each diner can stir it into the accompanying dish to suit personal taste. Its relatively salty quality takes to lifting the flavors of milder foods such as couscous.
Serve tiny dabs of harissa as a piquant side sauce for grilled and roast meats and poultry, or use it as a general-flavor booster for stews, soups and sauces. If you're looking to create an authentic Moroccan or Tunisian meal, this is a classic accompaniment.
