Mina Green Harissa Sauce

Photo of Shrimp Tacos using Mina Green Harissa SauceMina Green Harissa Sauce is a contemporary twist on the classic Moroccan pepper sauce. Mina’s special blend of natural ingredients includes green chile pepper, bell pepper, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and Moroccan cumin for a deeply savory and surprisingly spicy sauce that packs a delicious punch.

Mina makes three varieties of Harissa sauce. They have both a mild and spicy version of the classic red pepper sauce. (The spicy harissa turns up the heat for more daring taste buds.) And, they also craft a spicy green pepper paste made with green chilis and Moroccan cumin.
