  • chopping board
  • chef knives

  • 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 it will bring a nice creamy and salty flavour too.
  • 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
