Our Harissa Olive Oil captures the rich and spicy flavors of North Africa and the Middle East, like a genie in a bottle.
Harissa is a spicy, chili-based condiment widely used in Moroccan, Algerian and Tunisian cooking. Harissa is a ground paste made from smoked chilies, garlic, caraway, coriander and cumin -- a combination which calls up the smells of exotic spices and tropical fruits for sale in the open air bazaars of Casablanca and old Tripoli. We infuse our delicious olive oil with harissa for 12 hours or more, letting the vibrant spicy flavors develop.
The combination of sweet and hot peppers, and the fruitiness of olive oil in our Harissa Olive Oil delivers the unforgettable classic flavor of the Maghreb. This oil is great for spicing up grilled or roasted foods. Add Harissa Olive Oil to homemade [or even storebought] hummus for an authentic, flavorful kick.
Use Harissa Olive Oil to add flavor either as a condiment or as an integral ingredient to the dish. Try Harissa Olive oil in couscous, pasta recipes, as a condiment on sub sandwiches and in stews and soups.
Try scrambling eggs and cheddar cheese with a splash of Harissa Olive Oil for a breakfast surprise! Harissa Olive Oil pairs deliciously with Tangerine Balsamic for a spicy Moroccan marinade or vinaigrette. For surprisingly delicious dressings, match Harissa Olive Oil with Dark Chocolate or Pineapple Balsamic vinegars.
