Smokey salmon deviled eggs

For this recipe, we are using organic or omega 3 eggs. A good quality of egg is a must for this recipe!
Online you can see alot of instruction videos about how to boil a hard boiled egg? This is unnecessary, because they show these videos for two reasons! one is to cook eggs that won’t burst and second is the yolk part. Most of the time people cook eggs too short on the stove with the result of having half soft and hard egg yolks. For deviled eggs you need hard boiled eggs. For Smokey salmon deviled eggs it is important to have hard boiled eggs. Smoked salmon is juicy! For these type of deviled eggs, the filling must be dry!
Smoking warm salmon
For Smokey salmon deviled eggs we are smoking our own salmon. For this recipe we use Norwegian or Scottish salmon. We wash our salmon and marinade first. For this we use flaky salt, dill and lemon. During smoking we always use garlic too. This is the combination of our marinade. When you can’t smoke salmon, you can buy smoked salmon in the store. Please be careful when you buy this product! Most of the time smoked salmon isn’t smoked at all. Grocery stores sell smoked salmon with liquid smoke. This is a chemical which gives salmon a smokey flavor!
Stuffed smoked salmon deviled eggs and cream
Before I start with the deviled egg cream, I seperate the egg yolks from the shells (egg white) and mash my salmon. Then I am using a food processor. For this recipe I am always using a shallot onion. these onions are small and have more flavor. I pulse egg yolks and a shallot onion first until minced. Then comes the smoked salmon and other ingredients. I pulse this too until creamy! Make sure you taste with a clean teaspoon first if the flavors are right. When you think it needs more sugar, mustard or worcestershire sauce, do this in little steps! When you don’t do this with care, your smokey salmon deviled eggs become over flavored.
