Moroccan meatballs with tomato sauce or harissa mayonnaise!

We discover these sheep meatballs all alone to have such a phenomenal taste, that we generally don’t serve sauce with them.

Be that as it may, don’t hesitate to include a tomato sauce. At that point make that sauce to taste with, for instance, (singed) onion, garlic, pimentón and cumin. Furthermore, obviously another scoop of harissa!

That is a mayonnaise through which you mix – in addition to other things – a couple of spoons of harissa. I make it myself normally, in light of the fact that it isn’t just heavenly with meatballs, yet in addition with different kinds of meat, fish or chicken.

However I use it considerably more frequently to season different dishes with it.

It is delectable with a wide range of sauces, soups and stews and with fish, meat or chicken.
