Deviled Eggs: Ingredients
- Smoked salmon
- Sour cream
- Red onion
Place the eggs into boiling water. They will take exactly 6 minutes and 30 seconds to get the perfect texture on the yolks. As soon as they are cooked, run them under cold water to cool them down so that they don’t overcook.
Slice the red onions as thin as you can, and mix them in a large salad bowl with the rocket and a squeeze of the lemon.
Peel the eggs carefully to ensure they are still fully intact. The shells should come off easily.
Cut the eggs in half. The yolks should be firm but every so slightly soft.
Scoop the yolks out into a bowl…
Mix the yolks with the sour cream and the paprika. You can also season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
When the mixture is smooth, carefully pop it back into the centre of the eggs using a spoon.
Drizzle the salad with a little olive oil at the last minute, and layer it onto the plate.
Slice the smoked salmon into thin slices and place on top of the salad.
Serve the eggs with the salad. Three egg halves per portion is the perfect amount.
A perfectly simple-yet-tasty salad to wow your friends or family with.
