Spice and Co Harissa Mix
Harissa is a popular condiment in North Africa. The Spice and Co. powder version of this blend, when mixed with equal parts hot water and olive oil, creates a great Harissa paste. Traditionally, Harissa is used on kebabs, salads, vegetables, cooked meats like lamb, beef and chicken and in stews, soups, couscous and chickpeas. Suitable for both cooking and seasoning purposes.

Uses and Ideas!
To make Harissa paste simply place 3 tablespoons olive oil in bowl and heat (microwave). Add 3 tablespoons Harissa mix with 3 tablespoons boiling water, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar or lemon juice and mix to paste. Allow the flavours to infuse for a few hours before using. Use sparingly as a marinade for joints of beef, lamb, goat, fish or whole chicken before roasting.
Use to add spice to soups, pasta and rice dishes and tomato based sauces.
Harissa is a great condiment that goes well with fried, baked or poached eggs.
Use in powder form (when sautéing onions and garlic) when braising pulses like chickpeas, lentils or white beans. Add a fine dusting of harissa powder when grilling/ barbecuing vegetables like asparagus, corn, eggplant and zucchini.
When grilling (use sparingly as a dry rub) over steaks, chicken pieces and lamb chops. Simply moisten the surfaces of the steak etc. with olive oil and dust with the Harissa powder. However you may choose to use Harissa; the flavour is enhanced with the addition of a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice!!!
