Avraham ben haRambam, it is customary to add this brief midrash to Dayenu, after the verse that ends "but had not given us their wealth, dayenu."

וּמִנַּֽיִן שֶׁנָּתַן־לָֽנוּ אֶת־מָמוֹנָם? שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר — וַֽיְנַצְּל֖וּ אֶת־מִצְרָֽיִם׃ (שמות יב:לא) עֲשָׂאֽוּהָ כִּמְצוּלָה שֶׁאֵין בָּהּ דָּגִים׃ דָּבָר אַחֵר, עֲשָׂאֽוּהָ כִּמְצוּדָה שֶׁאֵין בָּהּ דָּגָן׃[1] ראה ברכות ט ׃בנוסח תימן אומרים — אִם עֲשָׂאֽוּהָ כִּמְצוּלָה זוֹ שֶׁאֵין בָּהּ דָּגִים, אִם עֲשָׂאֽוּהָ כִּמְצוּדָה זוֹ שֶׁאֵין בָּהּ דָּגָן׃ 
And from where is it derived that God gave us their wealth? As it is said: “And they stripped Egypt.” (Exodus 12:31) They made it like a depth without fish in it. Alternatively, they made it like a trap without birdseed in it.[2] Both puns in the original Hebrew — see Berakhot 9b. The Yemenite text says, “Maybe they made it like a depth without fish in it; maybe, they made it like a trap without birdseed in it.” 
לָמָּה מְחַבֵּב הַכָּתוּב אֶת־בִּזַּת הַיָּם יוֹתֵר מִבִּזַּת מִצְרַיִם? אֶלָּא מַה־שֶּׁהָיָה בַּבָּתִּים נָטְלוּ[3] בנוסח תימן אומרים — נְטָלֽוּהוּ  בְּמִצְרַיִם׃ וּמַה שֶּׁהָיָה בְּבָתֵּי תְּשׁוּרָאוֹת[4] בנוסח תימן אומרים — סוּרָאוֹת  נָטְלוּ[5] בנוסח תימן אומרים — נְטָלֽוּהוּ  עַל־הַיָּם׃ וְכֵן הוּא אוֹמֵר׃
Why does the text cherish the plunder of the sea over the plunder of Egypt? Only that which was in the houses did they take[6] Yemenite text says, “did they take of it.”  in Egypt. But that which was in the tribute houses[7] Yemenite text says, “storehouses.”  they took[8] Yemenite text says, “did they take of it.”  at the sea. Thus it says:
כַּנְפֵ֣י י֭וֹנָה נֶחְפָּ֣ה בַכֶּ֑סֶף (תהלים סח:יד
זוֹ בִּזַּת מִצְרַיִם׃
וְ֝אֶבְרוֹתֶ֗יהָ בִּירַקְרַ֥ק חָרֽוּץ[9] לעיל 
זוֹ בִּזַּת הַיָּם׃
“Wings of a dove sheathed in silver” (Psalms 68:14)
this is the plunder of Egypt.
“And its pinions in yellow gold”[10] Ibid. 
this is the plunder of the sea.
וַתִּרְבִּי֙ וַֽתִּגְדְּלִ֔י וַתָּבֹ֖אִי (יחזקאל טז:ז)
זוֹ בִּזַּת מִצְרַיִם׃
בַּעֲדִ֣י עֲדָיִ֑ים[11] לעיל 
זוֹ בִּזַּת הַיָּם׃
“And you went and grew and came” (Ezekiel 16:7)
this is the plunder of Egypt.
“Ornamented with ornaments”[12] Ibid. 
this is the plunder of the sea.
תּוֹרֵ֤י זָהָב֙ נַֽעֲשֶׂה־לָּ֔ךְ (שיר השירים א:יא)
זוֹ בִּזַּת מִצְרַיִם׃
עִ֖ם נְקֻדּ֥וֹת הַכָּֽסֶף[13] לעיל 
זוֹ בִּזַּת הַיָּם:
“Ringlets of gold we will make for you” (Song of Songs 1:11)
this is the plunder of Egypt.
“With points of silver”[14] Ibid. 
this is the plunder of the sea.
