Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter E

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Sunshine Eats: Eggs Deviled with Salmon! Have you noticed? Variations of deviled eggs are all the rage on the appetizer menus. Known once as a classic staple for every summer gathering, the deviled egg has been reinvented in countless ways. Creativity knows no bounds. Whether you choose spicy jalapeño*, creamy tuna salad, or low-cal Greek yogurt, the spin-off creations are definitely show-stoppers. Don’t believe me? Try these Smoked Salmon beauties at your next party or pitch-in picnic.  
EGGS DEVILED WITH SALMON 
Ingredients:

6 hard boiled eggs, cooked and peeled

1/4 cup cream cheese

2 tablespoons mayonnaise 

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon white vinegar 

1 tablespoon red onion, diced

1/8 teaspoon dill weed

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon white pepper 

4 ounces Applewood Smoked Salmon

1 teaspoon capers, for garnish 

Fresh dill sprigs, for garnish

Paprika, if desired
Instructions:

Halve the eggs lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks and place in a medium bowl. Gently place white portions on a platter. Arrange dill sprigs. These will help to keep the eggs from rocking. Set aside. Cut the salmon slices into 12 thin strips. Roll each strip to make a tight rosebud. Transfer to a plate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Chop the remaining salmon into small pieces. Mash the egg yolks with a fork until crumbly. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, red onion, dill weed, sea salt, white pepper, and remaining salmon. Stir until combined. Spoon mixture into hollowed out egg white shells. Place a salmon “rosebud” on top. Garnish with one caper in the center of each salmon piece. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Refrigerate for one hour before serving. Store leftovers in a covered container.
