Preserved doqq lemons are an authentic, and essential, component of many North African, Mediterranean, and Indian recipes.

These traditional doqq lemons (Citrus limonum Risso var. pusilla R), known in Morocco as citron beldi, or l'hamd beldi, grow in the Taroudant region outside of Agadir.

The thinner skin, and fragrant aroma, of doqq lemons makes them the most highly prized lemons of North Africa. Paula Wolfert, an expert on Moroccan cuisine, considers them the crème de la crème in her book "The Food of Morocco".

These lemons have a delicate "zing", along with a tantalizing sweet and sour aroma, that is unmistakably and evocatively North African.

A few serving ideas:

  • Add these lemons to tagines, roast chicken, fish, salsas, and salads - all kinds of Mediterranean cooking, to get that delicate citrus flavor.
  • Make a traditional Moroccan Tagine.
  • Create your own Ngam nguv, a traditional Cambodian chicken soup with whole preserved lemons.
  • Combine them in your recipes that use olives, artichokes, seafood, veal, chicken, and rice for added flavor and complexity.
  • Use them as an accompaniment to curd rice, which is often the last course in South Indian Cuisine.
  • Add the pickled pulp and liquid to Bloody Marys and other beverages where lemon and salt are used.
  • Combine preserved lemons with horseradish if you want to make an American-style cocktail sauce.

They are so easy to incorporate into your recipes, simply give them a quick rinse under cool water to remove any excess salt, and then chop them up... you use the entire lemon, rind and all!

Note: preserving the lemons in salt removes the bitterness normally associated with the rind and pith... what you will find is a clean, bright, pure lemon flavor! Take a slice, pop it in your mouth, and see how magical preserved lemons can be!

No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Rose petals are one of over fourteen (14) spices added to give this Belazu Rose Harissa paste its complex and spicy taste. Harissa was originally a staple of Tunisian cooking but now it is used throughout North Africa as a seasoning. The rose petals provide a counter point to the chili heat, adding a richness and complexity you are sure to enjoy.

Harissa is perfect for adding to traditional North African tagines, and for stirring into couscous. However, this is such an extremely versatile product so do not restrict its use to only traditional North African recipes. You can use it as an added seasoning like salt and pepper to add complexity to your meals, and as a dip for bread, crackers, and vegetables.

  • Add a teaspoon to your pasta sauces.
  • Stir a dollop into soups to for an exotic finishing touch.
  • It makes a perfect marinade for chicken breasts when combined with some extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
  • It is fantastic smothered over grilled meats, poultry, fish, and roasted vegetables.
  • Stir some into yogurt or relish to serve as an accompaniment to your meals.
  • Combine a spoonful of harissa with several tablespoons of creme fraiche and some coriander for an instant dip.
  • Use it in Yotam Ottolenghi's recipe Straccetti with red mullet, harissa and black olives

Mina Harissa is a traditional Moroccan red pepper sauce, carefully blended using only 6 simple, all natural, ingredients: red chili pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, salt.

Harissa is hailed as the heart and soul of Moroccan cuisine. It is imbued with all the culinary passions of a country and a people, and is the central condiment that sits atop every kitchen table in North Africa. People use it as a spread, a dip, and drizzled on top of nearly every dish. Harissa is the ultimate red pepper condiment and sauce that, with its spicy kick, transforms many dishes into a culinary delight.

Appearing on classic and contemporary menus as the star condiment, it goes equally well with New Zealand lamb, Southern barbecued chicken, scallops Provencal, or a vegetable tagine with couscous. This harissa will transform your meal into a culinary journey.

This harissa, unlike so many on the market that are overwhelmingly spicy just to be spicy-hot, is ALL ABOUT FLAVOR, with just enough zing to keep it interesting.

You can even buy one jar of the regular, and one jar of the mild, and do your own custom blend to adjust the heat level to your own particular recipes and personal taste preferences!

Fish Tagine Sauce (Mina)
Fish Tagine Sauce (Mina) Be the first one to write a review

In Morocco, one of the most popular dishes is Moroccan fish. As the base for our fish tagine simmering sauce we use the delicious chermoula, Morocco’s all-purpose marinade, made with aromatic herbs (cilantro, parsley) and spices (paprika, cumin, turmeric). Lemon and ginger are added for brightness and complexity, cayenne provides a bit of heat, and tomato intensifies the richness of the sauce.

Fish tagine is traditionally prepared with carrots, potatoes, bell peppers, and olives. Any firm fish, such as salmon, red snapper, or cod, is ideal. Serve with couscous, rice, or crusty bread to scoop up every bite of the wonderful sauce.

Slow oven-drying concentrates the prunes’ natural sweetness before they are carefully rehydrated with steam. The result is exquisitely plump prunes with a luscious, creamy texture.

These prunes lend a full, ripe flavor, and a satisfying bite to all manner of sweet and savory dishes.

  • Serve with a cheese platter
  • Bake a prune d’Agen tart (after soaking the prunes in muscat!)
