Shakshuka

Furthermore, I would like to give some tips for this shakshuka recipe. Firstly, in this recipe, I have used canned tomato slices with herbs. But you can also use fresh tomatoes and then add some fresh herbs like basil or parsley. Secondly,  it is a spicy and tangy dish, so adjust the spice level as per your taste. Then, You may also add crumbled feta cheese instead of parmesan cheese. Then, try to cook this shakshuka recipe in an iron-cast skillet.

Finally, Crack the eggs one at a time directly over the tomato mixture (give enough space around the outer edge and one at the center). Cover the pan and cook the eggs for 2 to 3 mins to taste ( many people like their shakshuka eggs slightly runny or half cooked).
