Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Heat a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat on the stovetop; add oil and onion. Toss until translucent. Add garlic, pepper, caraway seeds, coriander, salt and black pepper. Toss until fragrant.
  2. Add tomatoes and harissa; stir to combine. Simmer slowly for 30 minutes or until thick enough to be able to press the back of a spoon into the mixture to create 3 to 5 round divots.
  3. Carefully crack an egg into each divot without breaking the yolk. Cover and place into preheated oven. Bake 6 to 7 minutes to poach eggs. Do not overbake. Remove skillet from the oven when egg whites are set, but egg centers are liquid. Remember: eggs will continue to cook slightly in the hot shakshuka mixture.
  4. Serve immediately with warm naan, pita or crusty bread for scooping.
