Harissa sauce

  • 10 minutes
  • Makes 2 cups
Harissa sauce

Deliciously fiery. Perfect to jazz up almost any meat off the barbecue this summer.


  • 250 grams sour cream
  • ½ cup good thick quality mayonnaise or hummus
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
  • 12 stuffed green olives, chopped
  • 2-3 teaspoons harissa paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander


  1. Stir all the ingredients together and season with salt. Allow to stand for about 1 hour if you can to let the flavours marry together.

Cooks Tips

Variations: - Add a few chopped semi-dried tomatoes or grilled red peppers. - Make an Indian version with a curry paste, omit the olives and add finely chopped crystallised ginger.
