  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 oz smoked salmon (about 1/2 cup), plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, plus more if desired
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons capers, roughly chopped, plus more for garnish
  • Smoked paprika for garnish


  • Hard-boil the eggs: In a saucepan large enough to fit all the eggs in a single layer, bring water to a boil (enough water to fully submerge the eggs). Turn down the heat and carefully lower each egg into the simmering water. Cover with a lid, simmer for 1 minute, and then turn off the heat. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 13-14 minutes. Rinse eggs in cold water and peel them.
  • Cut each egg in half lengthwise. Remove egg yolks into another bowl and set aside. Refrigerate the egg whites while you make the filling.
  • Make the filling: In the bowl, combine the egg yolks, mayo, dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Whip using an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Fold in chopped the capers and chopped salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.
  • Fill the egg whites with the egg yolk filling using a piping bag or a Ziploc bag. Garnish with paprika, smoked salmon, capers, and chives. Enjoy!


  • Special equipment: electric mixer or whisk.
  • Hard-boiling eggs: Make sure the eggs are cooked until the yolk is creamy and not runny. To achieve this, simmer the eggs for 1 minute and then let them sit in the hot water (heat off) for 13-14 minutes.
  • Storing: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Deviled eggs cannot be frozen.
