Williams-Sonoma Harissa Spice

A fiery specialty of North Africa cuisine, harissa is a vibrant seasoning that's traditionally spiced with hot chilies, garlic, cumin and coriander. Here, these signature ingredients are blended to create a flavorful seasoning that's perfect for roasting and grilling. Signature Tunisian seasoning creates a bold, spicy rub for roasted and grilled meats. Add the spice to olive oil and chopped garlic for a classic harissa paste. A favorite accompaniment for couscous, harissa is also used to flavor soups, stews, salads, vegetables and egg dishes. Create a spicy, refreshing dip for fresh vegetables by blending our Harissa Spice with tangy yogurt. Try in place of mustard on sandwiches. All spices are individually ground before blending, allowing their distinctive flavors to shine. These premium, all-natural seasonings are sourced from around the globe and expertly blended by a family-owned artisanal spice company in Northern California's Napa Valley. 2.1 oz.

Amazing spice
July 2, 2013
I recently purchases Harissa spice and now I use it on just about everything. I put it in my morning omelet to kick start my metabolism in the morning, put it on meat before grilling, put it in chile. It can do anything! Great way to add flavor without adding calories! I absolutely love it and it is great for your digestion and to increase your metabolism.
Pros: Texture, Easy to Prepare, Authentic, Quality, Time-saver, Flavor, Healthy

My New "Everything" Spice
June 24, 2012
The WS Harissa is fantastic. The quality and flavour are perfect. Usually you see harissa in a paste and it is generally scorching hot. The WS powdered harissa is much better though, as it allows you to control the heat better, medium to hot, while still letting the flavour show through.
Harissa is a spice blend that is slightly exotic, yet comfortably familiar. Its a blend of mostly familiar spices that come together for a new taste.
This is perfect with middle eastern, african and even latin dishes. I use it in a sauce to accompany a ras-al-hanout flavoured tagine. The sauces is simply creme fraiche, harissa, sea salt, then top it with cilantro.
This is great in rubs and on roasted meats, poultry and vegetables. Love it!
Pros: Texture, Authentic, Quality, Flavor, Healthy

Excellent Spice Combination
April 4, 2012
My husband's mother currently lives in Tunis, and every time she comes to visit we beg for a specific spice blends that is commonly used in soups, dry rubs, tagine, cous cous, etc. When I run out of 'small' amount of spices that she brought with her, I will use Williams Sonoma as a substitute and/or Ras el Hanout. This is a nice spice blend! The reason for the 3 stars is that my husband's grandmother makes a spice blend closer to the Ras el Hanout that is absolutely out of this world. It takes the whole summer to make, and is grinded at the local shop in Tunis -and, sold in the local markets.
Harissa (specific chili blend) from Tunisia is nothing like this. Generally, I have seen it commonly in households in a paste form and is VERY hot. Just need a little bit to add some heat. Also, they make the Harissa from scratch.
I am thrilled to see WS offering North African spice blends.
Pros: Good for Entertaining, Flavor
