Here’s a more sophisticated harissa, one flavored with fresh chiles and preserved lemons. The preserved lemons—one of the most distinctive flavors in Moroccan cuisine—are a sort of pickle made with fresh lemons and salt. You can buy them in North African and Middle Eastern markets and at specialty food shops. A little of this intensely flavored pickle goes a long way.
