A taste of the Middle East...
Shakshuka is a traditional Middle Eastern breakfast that consists of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce. It is said that this dish originated in Tunisia, and when the Ottoman empire spread so did the dish. It is full of smokey flavors and I accentuated these flavors by using my Mexican background of roasting the tomatoes and chili pods for this dish. One thing you must remember when making any dish, you should salt and taste throughout your cooking so that you don't leave it flavorless or overly salted.
I learned of this dish during a visit to Tunisia in 2009 and again reintroduced to it recently via a restaurant in Los Angeles called HASIBA. The dish I recently has was packed full of flavor, but lacked presentation. I am the type of person that eats with their eyes first. Let's get cooking.
