Harissa Paste or Tunisian blend is a hot chilli & spice paste widely used in many Moroccan and Tunisian dishes. The Spice Library’s Harissa Paste is freshly hand-crafted in Perth WA, using the freshest ingredients.
In Tunisia, this paste is added to soup, goat casseroles and fish stews. Also use with couscous for an added flavour.
We highly recommended using the Spice Library’s Spices harissa paste with our Ras-el-hanout spice blend for moroccan tagins and casseroles.
