Expert Tips

  • The numbers 16/20 or 26/30 often appear on shrimp labels. This refers to the number of pieces per pound. For this recipe, search out slightly larger shrimp—the smaller the number, the bigger the shrimp.
  • Harissa is a Tunisian hot chili sauce flavored with chiles, garlic, caraway, coriander and cumin.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
