Aged clarified butter used in Moroccan cooking. It is similar to the Asian version "ghee", which used in Indian cooking. One year is a common age, but the ultimate smen is supposed to be seven years old.

If you can find seven year old smen (and are willing to try it) you should combine it with a lucky couscous dish made with seven vegetables and seven spices.
