Shakshouka with Pineapple Carolina Reaper Preserve Recipe

Ingredient list:

Extra virgin olive oil
1 large yellow onion chopped
2 green peppers chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
5g Akaka’s Pineapple Carolina Reaper Preserve
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
½ teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch red pepper flakes optional
Salt and pepper
6 medium tomatoes, chopped (about 6 cups chopped tomatoes)
½ cup tomato sauce
6 large eggs
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
¼ cup chopped fresh mint leaves


Heat 3 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast iron skillet. Add the onions, green
peppers, garlic, spices, preserve pinch salt and pepper. Cook, stirring
occasionally, until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Cover and let simmer for about 15
minutes. Uncover and cook a bit longer to allow the mixture to reduce and
thicken. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
Using a wooden spoon, make 6 “wells,” in the tomato mixture (make sure the
indentations are spaced out). Gently crack an egg into each indention.
Reduce the heat, cover the skillet, and cook on low until the egg whites are set.
Uncover and add the fresh parsley and mint. You can add more black pepper or
crushed red pepper, if you like. Serve with warm pita, challah, or crusty bread
of your choice.
