Bajoran hasperat

Hasperat was a well-known spicy Bajoran food resembling a roll-up sandwich. It was made using a specially prepared brine, which if made correctly would cause the eyes to water and sear the tongue. Another method of serving hasperat was in a hasperat soufflé. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

Hasperat was one of many foods prepared for Bajoran comfort women when they arrived on Terok Nor. (DS9: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

Ro Laren was fond of hasperat, as was Maquis leader Macias. Ro recalled that her father made the strongest hasperat she'd ever tasted, so spicy that any other variety seemed mild by comparison; he also passed the recipe down to her. Ro agreed to make some for Macias as part of her attempt to infiltrate the Maquis in 2370. (TNG: "Preemptive Strike")

In 2371, Tekeny Ghemor served Kira Nerys some hasperat he replicated for her, telling her "it's only good when it's warm." (DS9: "Second Skin")

Hasperat was served at buffets aboard Deep Space 9 in 2372 in honor of Lenara Kahn and her team and later that year of Shakaar Edon. (DS9: "Rejoined", "Crossfire")

Also that year, Kira Nerys ordered hasperat from Quark's after the end of the Bajoran Time of Cleansing. (DS9: "Bar Association")

Orion Syndicate members Sorm and Traidy ate hasperat while plotting a murder as they hid in a cargo bay aboard Deep Space 9 in 2373; Sorm found the food spicy. (DS9: "A Simple Investigation")

When Kadi ambassador Tomin spent time aboard USS Voyager in 2375, one of the more flavorful foods he wanted to try was hasperat, which Neelix gladly prepared for him. (VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me")

In the year 3189, Adira Tal mentioned that despite not being connected to their Trill symbiont, they knew how to cook a mean Bajoran hasperat. (DIS: "Forget Me Not")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 329) had this to say about hasperat: "According to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine property master Joe Longo, the prop food used for hasperat was made from flour tortillas, layered with cream cheese, with red and green peppers. The tortillas are rolled, then sliced and served. Yum!"
Hasperat was introduced in TNG: "Preemptive Strike".
According to the script for "Bar Association", the food's name was pronounced as "HAS-per-uht". [1]
