I have a question about the recipe "Moorish Paella " from NWB. What is Harissa and where can it be found?

Harissa is a hot red pepper paste used in North African cooking. You can buy it at most specialty food shops, and at Whole Foods. Or make your own: http://food52.com/recipes...
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
In addition to Whole Foods you can also find it a Sur La Table. Indeed, if you do a recipe search for "harissa" at Food52 you will find some good recipes.
Trena is a trusted source on general cooking.
I've seen Harissa sold in tubes and it comes out as a paste. I frequent a middle eastern restaurant in town that serves "homemade" harissa and it has a looser consistency. I've used a recipe from food52 for harissa and it turned out delicious. I'd suggest you make a homemade version when hot peppers are in season at your local farmers market. They should be in season around June or July.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
