How to Make Harissa Sauce


  1. Simmer the chilies until soft in water to cover - about 10 minutes. Drain the chilies.
  2. Slice each chili down the center and wash in water to remove the seeds.
  3. Mince chilies with a knife until they resemble a thick paste.
  4. Mix all ingredients together, adding more oil, lemon juice or honey to get to a sauce-like consistency if necessary.
