"These spicy lamb meatballs are inspired by the flavors of North African merguez sausage. Serve with roasted vegetables, over couscous, in flatbreads, or in a salad. Cilantro yogurt is a great accompaniment."

  1. Toast cumin, coriander, and fennel seeds in a dry skillet over medium-low heat until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Use a mortar and pestle to grind finely.
  2. Combine the ground spices, lamb, harissa, garlic, salt, and paprika in a large bowl. Mix by hand until thoroughly blended. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes so spices can permeate the meat.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Form the lamb mixture into 1-inch meatballs and place on the prepared sheet.
  5. Roast meatballs until the centers are no longer pink, 11 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a meatball should read at least 160 degrees F (71 degrees C).
