Merguez Sausages with Tehina Sauce
This is another great use for Harissa. I love Merguez sausages and if it's on a menu in a restaurant I will almost always get it. Merguez is a fresh sausage made with lamb, beef or a combination of the two and flavored with Harissa. It is spicy,super flavorful and delicious and it goes great with tehina which cools it off a little bit. I serve these often as an appetizer for Shabbat lunch and they are always a big hit. Enjoy!
For the Sausage Patties:
1 pound ground lamb or a mixture of beef and lamb
1/3 cup Harissa
1/2 of a medium onion, grated
4 cloves garlic, grated
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper
Mix the meat with the remaining ingredients until everything is combined but don't over mix . Shape the mixture into patties and pan fry in a little oil until browned on each side and cooked through.
1/3 cup prepared Tehina
2-3 Tbl lemon juice
1 clove garlic, grated
Mix all together adding a little water if necessary to make it sauce consistency.
