Shakshuka – what is it?

Shakhshuka is a one-pot dish consisting of poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce. The sauce is prepared with various spices such as cumin, paprika, garlic and onions to give it its typical taste. The eggs are added directly to the sauce and cooked until the whites are set while the yolks remain slightly runny. This dish is often served for breakfast or brunch, but it also makes a great hearty dinner.

Shakshuka – where does it come from?

Shakhshuka has its origins in North Africa and the Middle East. It is believed that the dish was developed by Tunisian and Moroccan Jews. The name “Shakhshuka” comes from Arabic and means something like “mixture”. Traditionally, shakhshuka was prepared over an open fire or on a wood-burning stove, giving the dish its distinctive flavor and texture.

The step-by-step instructions

  • Step 1: Chop
    Peel and dice the onion, chop the garlic. Cut the peppers into thin, elongated strips. Wash, peel and dice the tomatoes.
  • Step 2: Fry
    Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté onion and garlic. Add the pepper strips to the pan and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Step 3: Give time to simmer
    Add the diced tomatoes, cumin and remaining spices to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything well and bring the sauce to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce gently for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to combine.
  • Step 4: Add & poach eggs
    Use a spoon to make small indentations in the sauce and carefully crack the eggs into these indentations. Make sure that the egg yolks remain intact. Cover the pan and poach the eggs over low heat until the whites are set and the yolks are still slightly runny. This usually takes around 5-7 minutes but can vary depending on the desired consistency.
  • Step 5: Serve
    Once the eggs are ready, remove the pan from the heat and garnish the shakhshuka with fresh parsley and chili flakes. If you want, you can spread some feta on top (optional).Serve the shakhshuka straight from the pan.

Shiba’s notes on Shakshuka recipe:

For a perfect Shakhshuka recipe, there are some important points you should pay attention to. Here I have summarized my tips & tricks for you:

  • Quality of ingredients:Use fresh ingredients, especially tomatoes, peppers and spices. Fresh ingredients make a significant contribution to the taste and quality of the dish. If you can't get ripe, fresh and seasonal tomatoes, I recommend using canned chopped tomatoes. These are freshly harvested.

  • Tomato sauce consistency:The tomato sauce should not be too thin or too thick. It should have a slightly creamy consistency that coats the eggs well. If the sauce is too thin, you can simmer it a little longer to thicken it. If it is too thick, you can add a little water to achieve the desired consistency.

  • Take your time:Let the sauce simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes before adding the eggs. This allows all the flavors to develop together and ensure a harmonious taste.
  • Poached eggs:Poached eggs are the heart of Shakhshuka. Make sure you add the eggs to the sauce carefully so that the yolks remain intact. The heat should be on low so that the eggs can slowly poach. The cooking time varies depending on the desired consistency of the eggs, so keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking or undercooking them.

  • Garnish:Fresh herbs like coriander or parsley are ideal garnishes for shakhshuka. They not only add color to the dish, but also an additional aromatic taste. You can also sprinkle grated cheese, such as feta or parmesan, over the shakhshuka to add even more flavor and texture.

  • Your personal taste🧡:As always, I think it's worth experimenting a little and adapting the dish to your personal taste :-).

I finally tried this recipe and I have to say: wow, it's delicious!!! My mistake was I always used tomato paste that was too liquid, this time I did it differently as you wrote and it turned out so delicious and tasty. Shakshuka in the morning for breakfast and you don't need much else! and also fits perfectly into my diet as I try to reduce carbohydrates. The dish keeps me full for half a day.
