Shakshuka is a dish of eggs poaches in tomatoes, capsicums (bell peppers), and onions. I first had it at Cafe Shenkin in Erskinville, and loved it.
So obviously, this is not an authentic shakshuka. Don’t hate me. But who doesn’t love bacon and chorizo?
I’ve done shakshuka few times before. Actually I did it just last Saturday. But I left the eggs too long and it wasn’t runny anymore. And couldn’t forgive myself for that until I make a good batch, that’s why I made it again this weekend, and I’am happy!
Initially, I wanted to do everything from fresh produce so I started by making my own tomato sauce. I won’t explain it on this post because I still ended up using 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. I guess this will serve up to 8 people if you’ll just give them small bowls. But me and Andrew ate half of it in one seating. LOL
