Shakshuka is a staple dish in North Africa and one of the highlights of Moroccan cuisine.
This rich-spiced tomato sauce could be considered the North African cousin of the Italian marinara, although shakshuka has more character, charming aromas as well as a spicy and subtle kick.
Shakshuka comes from the word 'shakshek', which means 'shake' or 'jiggle' in North African Arabic. It refers to the action of mixing all the ingredients together in order to prepare this delicious piquant sauce.
Our shakshuka sauce has been carefully developed by Mina in order to give you an exotic experience with a homemade feel.
Shakshuka is typically served in a tagine or skillet with poached eggs and bread. Our shakshuka sauce can also be served over pasta, on pizza, or as a crostini topper. Think of it as an “everything sauce” that can also serve as a foundation for a wide variety of proteins and vegetables.
