Expert Tips

The numbers 16/20 or 26/30 often appear on shrimp labels. This refers to the number of pieces per pound. For this recipe, search out slightly larger shrimp—the smaller the number, the bigger the shrimp.

Harissa is a Tunisian hot chili sauce flavored with chiles, garlic, caraway, coriander and cumin.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
