Seafood Shakshuka


This Seafood Shakshuka recipe is a @cookbycolor family collabo. My brother owns @duidough café in Hollywood, and I helped create the menu so no matter who you’re brunching with – there is something for everyone, and EVERYTHING is customizable (because I am a complicated order-er). The sauce recipe is delicious! We make it with seafood at home but you can use the sauce to cook eggs and a side of sweetpotatoasts like they do @duidough. ⁣
