Zhug-Zhug is Harissa inspired powdered hot sauce. Biggest different between a traditional Harissa (apart from this being powdered versus a paste) is the lack of tomato. We did that on purpose, though, as we have ready access to powdered tomato, both red and sun-dried. We skipped the tomato to offer more versatility and to extend the product's shelf life. That said, this is a fantastic base of seasonings for a solid, authentic homemade Harissa.
Made with an intense blend of chile peppers (including Kashmir, Aleppo, Cayenne, Ancho, Smoked Paprika, Guajillo, and just enough Reaper to give it some burn), Coriander, Garlic, Salt, Spices and dried vegetable oil.
Zhug Zhug (aka: Hellacious Harissa) is currently only available in Shorty bottles.

- Works great as a seasoning on plated dishes as well as a rub. Fantastic on veggies, meats, and more. Adds a killer old world twist to most anything.
