Taste a traditional Moroccan dish from Shakshuka Shack
The cuisine of Morocco is a blend of Mediterranean and desert dwellers’ culinary traditions.
Shakshuka is a staple dish of Morocco consisting of poached eggs cooked in a Moroccan spice-infused tomato-based sauce served with coriander and a fresh baguette. Audrey Zelia from Shakshuka Shack grew up in the archipelago of Seychelles off the east coast of Africa and whilst the cuisine wasn’t the same, the flavours of shakshuka remind her very much of those of her childhood.
Audrey’s Shakshuka Shack serves up this delicious dish to market goers at Kelvin Grove Village Market every Saturday morning. Whilst traditionally eaten at breakfast, shakshuka can be eaten at any time of the day. Stop by for breakfast or brunch and select from the monthly rotating special accompaniments of fetta cheese, sauteed garlic mushrooms, hummus, smoked chorizitos, spicy beans or smashed avocado. You can even purchase the Moroccan sauce and make your own shakshuka at home.
Audrey specialises in this one delicious dish with a range of accompaniments, so she prides herself of the quality of the ingredients that go into it. Free-range eggs come from fellow market stallholder The Egg Man and the baguette comes from local Red Hill bakery La Vosh Patisserie.
Audrey has a keen cooking eye on many other exciting and exotic flavours and cuisines, which she hopes to be adding to Shakshuka Shack menu in the near future.
