What is Harissa
So what is harissa? Let me introduce you to the chili sauce or ketchup of the Middle East. It originated in Tunisia. Traditionally created to season goat, lamb, or fish stew, harissa’s popularity grew rapidly. It soon spread to other countries like Libya, Algeria, Morocco, France and Germany.
The main ingredients in a dry homemade harissa are usually piri piri, a type of chili pepper, serrano peppers or other hot chili peppers, plus spices and herbs, like garlic, coriander, red chili powder and caraway seeds. But depending on which household you live in or what region you’re from, it might include other things like cumin, , red peppers and lemon juice.
