Harissa is a genuinely Tunisian Hot Sauce made of hot pepper and garlic. It is usually eaten with bread as a starter that increases appetite. Best served with olive oil, Tuna and olives! or in a sandwitch containing all these ingredients and other optional ones like cheese and eggs.
I came accross this funny video on Facebook, where Japanese in a TV show taste Harissa for the first time! but they did it it the wrong way, because it is not supposed to be eaten straigh from the can, but with bread and olive oil ! It was too hot for them!! So watch their reactions.
I include here also Harissa Recipe, and how it should be consumed:
225g dried chillies
120ml olive oil
4 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of ground coriander
1 tablespoon of caraway seeds
1 tablespoon of salt
