As we are getting closer to Hanukkah, the “Everything Fried” holiday, I'm excited to share my Fricassee recipe with you all! One of the best ways to truly understand Tunisian flavors is with this Fricassee roll. This deep-fried yeasted dough is made with King Arthur's Organic AP Flour. It is stuffed with tuna, olives, harissa, pickled lemon, potatoes and pickles! Pure Tunisian goodness. It is the kind of food that you try once, and crave for always! Savory, crisp, and perfectly balanced.
