Mediterranean Shakshouka

Good morning to you all from our campsite in Devon. This Mediterranean Shakshouka is so fulfilling and delicious. Also, it’s so nice and easy that everyone will love cooking it, I know I do and so do our friends that we went camping with. This Mediterranean Shakshouka is so delicious that you can have it at any time of the day. I know in some countries they have it for breakfast but I was brought up to have it at lunch time as a part of a main dish, but I am sure you can have it any time as it is so delicious. Some countries add some spices to the dish, but I like to leave it in the traditional way as this is how I was taught to make it.

I have to say that normally I love changing recipes around and adding my own twist, but this time I have to say that it seems best to stick to the familiar, traditional method for this dish. I believe it was originally popular in Algeria,Tunisia and Israel. Now you will find it in most Mediterranean countries. It is especially delicious when you add the red pepper sauce – try it with and without the paste to see the difference.

It’s good to share recipes from all over the world. It opens up so many cultures and flavours. I like this dish with home-made flat bread that has been baked in a hot clay oven – I can smell it as I’m writing this!. I promised myself I will get a clay oven like the celebrity chefs have. Well you never know what Santa will get me – I have to be good!

I have a lovely new charcoal BBQ grill that I recently bought, and this type of dish always tastes that bit better when made using a proper charcoal barbecue, it makes a big difference to the flavours. This new one of mine is perfect for the job – nice and compact – also ideal for picnics and camping, or just in the garden. Also, because it is made from stainless steel, it won’t rust – a real bonus!  In case you’d like to know, it is a THÜROS, available in Lakeland and several other outlets in the UK.

Well let’s cook:
