Ready In:
4-5 hardboiled eggs


  • 4 -5 hardboiled large eggs, peeled
  • 2 -3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or combination of both) or 2 -3 tablespoons plain yogurt (or combination of both)
  • 1 teaspoon harissa, to taste (homemade is best!)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 14 teaspoon spanish smoked paprika (I used a combination of 1/8 t. smoked paprika and 1/8 t. chipotle powder)
  • salt, to taste (omit or use less salt if using the preserved lemon)
  • 12 teaspoon preserved lemon (if you don't have preserved lemon add 1/2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice)
  • Garnish

  • 12 tablespoon roasted almonds, finely chopped (pine nuts will work, too.)
  • fresh cilantro, parsley, chives (your choice) or mint (your choice)
  • caraway seed (optional)


  • Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and spoon yolks into a mixing bowl.
  • Add mayonnaise, harissa, olive oil, paprika, and salt. Mash with a fork until smooth.
  • Spoon mixture into egg-white cavity/halves.
  • Sprinkle with almonds and garnish with fresh herb(s) of choice. I added a *very light sprinkle* of caraway seeds to the top of each egg for garnish.

    Yum! Used recipe #424892 for the Harissa. I used mayo, just sweet paprika (since I had hot in my harissa), parsley, and forgot the nuts (whoopsie!) - such a fun way to change up devilled eggs, especially since I always have hard boiled eggs on hand! Made for ZWT 9.

    Great departure from the traditional deviled egg recipe (which I also love). Nice presence of heat, with a hint of smoke from the smoked paprika. I used preserved lemon and just a tiny bit of salt. I used store bought Harissa. For the garnish, I used cilantro, pine nuts and the optional caraway. Very good! Made for ZWT9

    Loved, loved these eggs. Wow, what flavor. I used homemade harissa, so happy that I did. They were awesome. I loved that you could taste so many different flavors and textures. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I couldn't find preserved lemons so I used fresh lemon juice as recommended. I garnished these masterpieces with cilantro, toasted pine nuts and caraway seeds. Thank you for sharing this recipe that I have placed in my Favorites for 2015. Kudos to you. Made FYC 2015

    Mmmm, munch, mmmm, munch, munch. Extremely tasty eggs that you have here CG. I didn't opt for the caraway (this time) but everything else went on and on, LOL. Made for NA/ME Tag.
