Ras El Hanout – Moroccan Spice Mix

Ras el hanout or Rass el hanout (Arabic: رأس الحانوت‎‎ raʾs al-ḥānūt, pronounced [rɑʔs ælħɑːnuːt]) is a spice mix from North Africa. It plays a similar role in North African cuisine as garam masala does in Indian cuisine. The name is Arabic for “head of the shop” (similar to the English expression “top-shelf”) and implies a mixture of the best spices the seller has to offer.Ras el hanout is used in many savory dishes, sometimes rubbed on meat or fish, or stirred into couscous or rice. The mix is generally associated with Morocco, although neighboring North African countries use it as well.

Use Ras el hanout on your grilled chicken, fish or lamb. It’s an incredible mix of flavors that will make almost any dish exotic. Authentic, hand mixed Ras el hanout is incredible and can be kept in a sealed container in the fridge for months.
