Uniquely delicious, from dip to marinade…
The spiciness, earthiness, and minty freshness all combine into a deliciously diverse mix of flavor. It’s a unique twist on a typical oil-based dipping sauce, or use it as a simple salad vinaigrette or grilling marinade. It’s so good with steak. If you want the flavors to infuse more in your grilling than a harissa dried seasoning would provide, this is your perfect solution.
Homemade Harissa Oil
- Over low heat, warm the seeds until they are aromatic, approximately 5 minutes. Don't let them burn.
- Using a mortar and pestle, crush the seeds, along with the mint, sea salt, and dried chilies into a coarse powder.
- Transfer the powder to a sealable jar and add in the smashed garlic and olive oil. Allow, the spices to settle to the bottom, then seal the jar.
- Let the oil infuse with the spice flavors for 24 hours prior to use.
