Hey there!

Warm…enticing…sweet and smokey, harissa is truly the fitting Autumnal sauce for all your meat, seafood and vegetables. I not only love the exotic and rich flavour but I enjoy it knowing that it is high in antioxidants if made from scratch due to the high level of capsaicin from the chillies. My harissa chicken is perfect for entertaining as well as a comforting meal for yourself. All you need for the harissa paste itself is:

2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon of coriander seeds
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Full seasoning
Roasted chilli pepper flakes (anywhere from a pinch to a tablespoon)
1 teaspoon of caraway seeds
1 pinch of saffron powder (pounded from the strands)
½ roasted red peppers, ripped into rough chunks

Simply blitz up the following ingredients for your harrisa paste and marinade your meat/fish or vegetables for a minimum of thirty minutes before you cook anything! This paste will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, so it’s a versatile and solid healthy sauce for your kitchen! Try it guys!
Happy Baking!
Niki
