Harissa Aioli:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp harissa seasoning


  • 2 Aqua Star Tilapia Fillets, thawed according to package directions, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tsp harissa seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 English muffins, toasted
  • 1 tomato, cut into slices
  • 4 pieces of lettuce

To make


To make Harissa Aioli, mix mayonnaise and 2 tsp of harissa seasoning in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to use.

Sprinkle both sides of the tilapia fillets with harissa seasoning, salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add vegetable oil. Sear tilapia 2—3 minutes on each side or until they reach an internal temperature of 145° F.

Meanwhile, heat another skillet with 1 tablespoon butter. Crack eggs into the pan being careful not to break the yoke. Cook 1—2 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.

To make sandwich, spread Harissa Aioli on both sides of the English muffin. Top with seared tilapia, egg, lettuce and tomato. Serve and enjoy!
