Harissa (will be translated upon request)

Harissa is a native North African and chillies growing in North Africa would be an obvious choice – but any kind may of course be used. I Marokko, Algeria and Tunisia used Harissa like in soups, couscous, simreretter, pasta dishes etc.

A mild Harissa is great at some good bread, on a baked potato or a piece of grilled vegetables.

Personally I do not think that Harissa must be made with chinenser – but like the other species.

You can use dried chili, som udblødet 20 minutter i varmt vand inden brug.


Chili: i.e.. a handful of piri piri or two

2 spsk korianderfrø

2 spsk spidskommenfrø

1 spsk kommensfrø

2 tsk tørret mynte eller lidt frisk

1½ spsk salt – like salt flakes

About . ½ head of garlic

Saften af 1 citron

3 spsk ekstra jomfru olivenolie + ekstra til at fylde på til sidst

How to:

Coriander, spidskommen and commentary shaken look on a medium hot forehead for about. 4 minutter under konstant omrøring.

The roasted crushes spices in a mortar or shredded in spice grinder with mint until they are pulverized.

Blend all ingredients, at near the extra olie, to form a smooth mass.

Pour the mixture in a clean, sterilized glass and smoothed out. Pour olive oil over the mass for about. 1 cm lag.

Every time there is used by Harissa'en topped up with a little more oil to seal the mass with.

Opbevares på køl i ca 2-3 uger. Alternatively, any portion of frozen after production.

If you taste Harissa'en in the blender before pouring it on glass – and finds it too strong – you can blend a little pepper or sun-dried tomato in. Now you can do anyway just for flavor. I use økocitroner and often choose to use the finely grated must also. Variér selv løs ;o)
