  • Yield:makes 8 deviled egg halves
  • Active time: 15 minutes
  • Total time:15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled or hard steamed eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon toasted dehydrated minced onion, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted caraway seeds, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons minced smoked salmon, plus more for garnish (from about 4 ounces)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Thinly sliced scallions, for garnish

Directions

  1. 1.

    Place all of the yolks in a medium bowl. Select 8 of the best looking egg white halves and set aside. Reserve the remaining 4 for another use. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, sesame seeds, dehydrated onion, caraway seeds, and smoked salmon to yolks and, using a sturdy whisk, mash and stir together until thoroughly combined. Season with salt.

  2. 2.

    Transfer yolk filling to zipper-lock bag. Filling and egg white halves can be stored covered in the refrigerator up to overnight before filling and serving (lay egg white halves cut-side-down on a large plate and cover with plastic wrap). Cut off corner of zipper-lock bag and pipe filling mixture into egg white halves, overstuffing each hole. Garnish deviled eggs with sesame seeds, dehydrated onion, caraway seeds, smoked salmon, and scallions. Serve immediately.
