 Essential Tools

Wooden spoon


Chopping board

Chef knives

Weighing scales

Cast iron or heavy bottom pan


You can cook the eggs in the pan on top of stove if you don’t have access to an oven.  Just cover the pan with a lid and let them steam. This will take 3 – 4 minutes.

Feta cheese is also a nice addition to sprinkle on top of shakshuka.

If you want crispy black pudding on/in the shakshuka reserve 50g of black pudding and fry separately in a pan until crispy and sprinkle on top to finish.

The fresh herb garnish really lifts the dish so if possible add as much as possible
