Shakshuka is a spicy tomato and poached egg dish that originated in Tunisia and has spread to many Middle Eastern and North African countries. Luckily, it has made its way to plenty of other parts of the world. A sauce that's a delicious combination of tomatoes, onions, and spices is the base for the eggs, which are cooked to perfection until creamy.

  • Add the chorizo to the onions and cook until completely browned. You can drain the excess oil if preferred.
  • Add the canned tomatoes and their juices, plus the tomato sauce, salt and cayenne. If using fresh tomatoes add a little water to cook it well.
  • Make some wells or holes in your tomato mixture and crack one egg into each hole.
  • Remove the skillet from the stove and place it in the preheated oven on the middle rack. Cook for some minutes, or until the eggs have reached your desired preferredness. The shorter the time you allow, the runnier the yolk.

Chorizo Shakshu is believed to have a Tunisian origin. Shakshuka means "a mixture" or “shaken” in Tunisian dialect. Shakshuka is a staple of Tunisian, Libyan, Algerian, and Moroccan cuisines traditionally served up in a cast iron pan with bread to mop up the sauce (most important). It makes a great family-style brunch dish served with crusty bread to scoop up the sauce and egg yolks, and you can serve it for lunch or dinner alongside a fresh salad.
