As Easter approached last week, my social streams filled with images of creative hard boiled egg recipes. Feeling inspired, I created these today for our Easter mid-afternoon dinner. The subtle salty meats, combined with the lemony mayo and soft boiled yolk is simply outstanding. Super simple, but picture perfect fancy food, these would wow any family get together.

Ingredients:

  • 6 soft boiled eggs*
  • 2 Tbs. mayo
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 scallion, diced
  • fennel or dill sprigs
  • dry aged prosciutto
  • cajun smoked salmon
  • white fish caviar

Preparation:

Combine mayo and lemon juice in a small bowl. Garnish plate with fennel sprigs. Cut each egg in half and arrange atop fennel sprigs. Top each egg with a dollop of lemon mayo and sprinkle with scallions. Alternate topping eggs with prosciutto and cajun smoked salmon. Garnish with white fish caviar. Enjoy!

*The perfect soft boiled eggs: Place 6 eggs in a pot of cold water, covering eggs completely with plus an inch. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 10 minutes. Immerse eggs in cold water immediately. Peel.
