Serves: 6


6 free-range organic eggs

4 ounces canned wild red traditional sockeye salmon

4 tablespoons aioli, see recipe

1 tablespoon salmon roe

1 teaspoon chopped dill


Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a
boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low so that the water is simmering,
then add the eggs
and cook for seven minutes
. Drain, and when completely cool, peel the eggs
under cold water. Allow the eggs to cool completely.

Slice the eggs into halves lengthwise. Carefully
remove the yolk from the white and place the yolks in a bowl.

Mash the yolk with a fork until broken down into
fine pieces. Add the wild salmon and aioli. Whip the mixture until smooth and
creamy with a spatula or wooden spoon. If you like, you can place the mixture
in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with a little salt and
pepper if needed.

Spoon the mixture into a disposable piping bag.

Lay the egg white halves hole-side up, then pipe
the salmon mixture evenly into the holes until all the salmon mixture is used

Top each filled egg with 1/4 teaspoon of salmon
roe and sprinkle with some freshly chopped dill.

Aioli Ingredients:

4 garlic cloves, roasted

4 organic free-range eggs

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Aioli Procedure:

Place the garlic, egg yolks, mustard, vinegar
and lemon juice in food processor and process until combined.

With the motor running, slowly pour in the oil
in a thin stream and process until the aioli is thick and creamy; add extra
olive oil if needed.

Season with salt and pepper.

Where Did Deviled Eggs Originate[CO2] ?

Deviled eggs are
well-known around the world as an appetizer or part of the main course. Although
there have been a lot of innovations when it comes to the recipe of deviled
eggs, the original deviled eggs dates back to the 13th Century in Andalusia, or
what is now called Spain. A cookbook from that time instructed the cook to
pound the egg yolks with cilantro, pepper, coriander and other ingredients. The
stuffing was then put back in the hollows of the egg whites and fastened with a
small stick.

But why are
deviled eggs called as such? This originates from a tradition in the 1700s, when
foods cooked with spicy ingredients were called “deviled.” Because of the
connection with the devil, church functions devised a different name for it;
thus referring to them as “stuffed eggs,” “dressed eggs,” and “salad eggs.”[1]

What Is Salmon Roe and Is It Healthy?

Often mistaken
for caviar, fish roe is a mixture of eggs taken from different types of fish,
such as herring, kelp, trout and salmon. When the term caviar is used, it usually
refers to sturgeon fish eggs, which are harvested in the Caspian and Black Seas.[2]

Salmon roe, or
Ikura, is normally orange or red-pink in color, and has a mild and sweet
flavor. It can be incorporated into dishes for flavor or to add a pop of color.
But the bright and attractive color of salmon roe is not the only reason why
this ingredient is highly commended in the world. Salmon roe is impressively
nutrient-rich, with some researchers claiming that it contains a higher density
of nutrients than the fish itself. It contains high amounts of DHA and EPA, B
vitamins, vitamin D, folate and thiamine.[3]

Why You Should Get Pasture-Raised Organic Eggs

Eggs have
largely been demonized because of the salmonella bacteria risk they pose if they
are eaten raw or undercooked. The problem is that a lot of people are not aware
that buying eggs from conventional poultry farms dramatically increases the
risk of getting salmonella. This is largely due to the inhumane conditions
egg-laying chickens are subjected to in these conventional farms. Not only
that, but many are also fed antibiotics and food that are grossly not species-appropriate.

Compared to animals in conventional
poultry farms, chickens raised in pastures are allowed to freely forage
outdoors. Because of this, they eat their natural diet, which consists of
worms, seeds, insects and plants. Free-range organic eggs also contain:

less saturated fat

times more
omega-3 fatty acids

vitamin A

times more beta carotene

When buying eggs, make sure that you
choose the free-range organic variant to lower your risk of salmonella
contamination. It will also ensure that you’re getting eggs that are rich in
protein and other essential nutrients.

Go for Wild Salmon Instead of Farmed Salmon

Salmon is widely praised as one of the
best sources of omega-3s, which are essential fatty acids that are important
for promoting brain function. However, salmon is also at the center of a hot
debate when it comes to food safety and toxin content.

Consumers around the world are commonly
torn between buying either farmed salmon or wild salmon. They either have to
shell out a few dollars more for wild salmon or settle for farmed salmon. But settling
for farmed varieties actually exposes you to the risk of consuming pesticides,
genetically engineered ingredients and antibiotics.

Aside from ingesting these possible pollutants lurking in farmed salmon,
its nutritional content is also poorer compared to wild salmon. While studies
show that farmed salmon has more protein content than wild salmon, this is only
a mere 2 percent. Wild salmon basically trumps farmed salmon in almost all of
the other health areas, such as high
antioxidant content, omega-3 fatty acids and
potassium levels.

[ECF6] I highly recommend going for wild Alaskan
because it is one of the best types of fish in the market. It has
the lowest mercury content among the larger types of fish and has high nutrient
