Spicy so defo need the sauce! I used a chorizo sausage that i cut into slices. The only thing is it cooks really quick - like a few minutes - so need to watch that. I added lemon juice to the sauce and used creme fraiche (full fat) sprinkled some smoked paprika on the top to jazz it up. Tasty

Really easy, but very flavoursome - these were gone in seconds. Great for impromptu visitors - I now keep some prawns & chorizo (I used the standard size sausage) in the fridge & Harissa and ready in 15 minutes!!!

Thank you for your question. Yes, you can. Make sure they're cooled quickly and refrigerated. They'll need to be kept cold during transportation.
