Harissa - should it be so bitter?

prunefeet | Oct 16, 2010 12:24 PM

I just picked up some harissa, it's a tunisian brand and comes in a's hot and very bitter. Should it be so bitter? The bitterness kind of obscures any other flavor. Should I try another brand or is this just what harissa is like? Please advise!
