  1. Combine salt and fennel seeds in a mortar and pestle and pound until fine. Stir cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric, and garlic cloves into the salt mixture and continue grinding to form a thick paste. Stir in harissa sauce and tomato paste until combined.
  2. Combine ground lamb and the spice paste together with a fork in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Form sausage into patties. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties until no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the patties.

We didn't like the flavoring at all. I made it twice, first with lamb and them with a chicken/turkey/beef mix. Something in the spice mix that we just didn't care for.

I cannot thank you enough for creating and posting this recipe! My husband is from the South of France where they eat merguez frites and merguez sandwiches as frequently as we eat cheeseburgers...

I was looking for a recipe for lamb to hide some of the lamb flavor and this worked very well, but had to change it for what I had in my kitchen. I made it with out the turmeric and Harisa sauce...
