harissa sauce replacement?

Hey just wondering if anyone knows a replacement you could use instead of harissa sauce? Im thinking sriracha chili sauce could work but I have never heard of or had harissa sauce before.

The canned harissa sauce that I've had has been thicker than Sriracha, more like a pepper paste. It also tasted like it had cumin in it.

If the texture of the sauce is important for whatever you're using it for, you could stir some hot paprika into the Sriracha to give it a more paste-like consistency.

And, add a dash of cumin.

Other than that, Sriracha would work, similar heat level.
