I looked for harissa for a long time before I found some at Williams-Sonoma. I was seriously about to order it from Amazon. Harissa is a chili paste made out of fresh or dry chilies, garlic, olive oil, and tomatoes. It is an essential condiment in North Africa cuisine. The first thing I did with it was a chicken stir fry, then Eric and I rubbed a couple of steaks and grilled them. Both winners. Harissa is possibly going to replace sambal as my condiment of choice. But I don’t want to get carried away. In Tunisia it is used to distinguish their couscous from all other couscouses world wide. They also put it on sandwiches. There is only a couple of things that I know about Tunisia, one is where it is and the other is that I used to get my ass kicked whenever I played them in Volleyball for the NES. But now that I know they put harissa on sandwiches, Tunisia is skyrocketing up my list of countries I want to visit. It is now somewhere between Poland and New Zealand.
Dry them pepper fruits!
