I'm planning on cooking this later in the week, but I don't know what harissa is or where I buy it from?

As far as I know, Harissa is a spicey, tomatoey blend of spices that is often added to a small amount of oil or water to make a paste of it to flavour or marinate meats.
If you like spicey food, you can either buy that from middle eastern/asian markets or simply use a tbsp of tomato paste, 1/4tsp cinnamon, 1tsp extra hot chili powder (more or less according to desired heat),1 tsp corriander powder, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper some water or olive oil to get the consistency desired to marinate. the rest of the ingredients in the recipe will complete the harissa ingredients.

You could buy the paste from any large supermarket, I know tesco has it:

thanks I'll try to get the paste from Tesco, but I live in a small market town, so won't hold my breath. If not, I'll just leave it out and see what happens.
