Harissa from Mustapha's Mediterranean

Availability: Out of stock

Hot Chile Paste from Morocco

Harissa, from the Arabic word lhares (“to crush”), is a spicy red chile paste from North Africa. This Moroccan version comes from Mustapha Haddouch, who arrived in the US in the ’80s with only $600 to his name and now sells his line of authentic Moroccan products to the finest specialty markets in the country.

Mustapha’s Harissa is a fiery blend of chiles, bell pepper, preserved lemon, tomatoes, garlic and spices. It is bright, salty and acidic, with a hint of lemon and a prickly heat that melts away on the tongue. We recommend using this one as you would hot sauce, since loose, tomato sauce-like consistency makes Mustapha’s Harissa easy to dollop or blend into any dish where you seek to add a peppery kick.

  • Stir into couscous and serve with Moroccan tagine
  • Blend with yogurt or cream cheese for a quick dip
  • Add to a marinade for chicken skewers
  • Mix with mayonnaise and top a burger
  • Rub onto shrimp or pork before grilling
  • Eat with scrambled eggs or a breakfast burrito

For a Tunisian take on Harissa, try Organic Harissa from Les Moulins Mahjoub.
