Recipe Summary

30 mins
makes 8 deviled eggs (16 halves)


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan, cover the eggs with water and bring to a vigorous boil. Cover the saucepan, remove from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Drain off the water and shake the pan gently to crack the eggs. Cool the eggs slightly under cold running water, then peel them under running water. Pat dry.

  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and carefully remove the yolks. Transfer the yolks to a bowl and mash well with a fork. Stir in the salmon, mayonnaise, cornichons, cornichon liquid and Dijon mustard. Season with salt. Mound the filling in the egg-white halves and sprinkle with Old Bay. Serve lightly chilled.

Suggested Pairing

One of the best pairings for eggs of any kind is sparkling wine; to start off the party, Jean-Charles Boisset served glasses of his nonvintage JCB No. 69 Crémant de Bourgogne.
