Harissa Fried Potatoes Onions Green Olives

Yield: About 4 hungry folks!

Let your palate travel to North Africa with these harissa fried potatoes! Wait till you see how amazingly delicious they are with onions & green olives!


  • 1/3 cup canola oil (can substitute olive oil or coconut oil)
  • 5 cups potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 Tbl. dry harissa spice mixture (can substitute creole or another spicy mixture)
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt (fine)
  • 1/2 cup green olives, sliced in halves
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped


Put the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Pat dry the potatoes. Put into the skillet and fry, uncovered, for about 5-7 minutes then start turning and moving around. Reduce heat to medium, cover with a lid and fry for about 10-12 minutes blending occasionally with a spatula.

Remove the lid and add the onions, sprinkle on the harissa, chili flakes and blend together. Cover with the lid and cook for another 6-7 minutes. If you want the potatoes crispier and brown, increase heat to medium-high and fry to a golden brown, blending with a spatula to prevent burning.

When done, remove with a slotted spatula to a cookie sheet lined with paper towels or a brown paper bag. Sprinkle on the sea salt and toss and blend then add the olives and parsley and blend together while still hot. Serve immediately!
