Deviled Eggs of the Sea

Tuna Deviled Eggs

Sunday was National Deviled Egg Day, and what better way to celebrate than to make deviled eggs, also known as eggs mimosa. Deviled eggs are my favorite thing to eat during Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom makes them on the sweet side which, in my opinion, is the best way. However, today I am making deviled eggs with a twist: with tuna!

I use Julia Childs’ method for boiling eggs. It is time consuming, but there is not a dark ring around the yolk unlike other methods. For perfect eggs, try her recipe (see below).

Tuna Deviled Eggs

I had 2 tuna packets and made the eggs two separate ways. I wanted to get a good idea as which mixture was better. Kelly likes a kick in his deviled eggs and preferred the mustard mixture. I like a sweeter egg and preferred the lemon mixture. I recommend making both and seeing for yourself which one you prefer. The entire process was fun and enjoyable.

What a great way to incorporate deviled eggs and tuna!

Place eggs in a bowl filled with cold water and ice for two minutes.

**This should allow the egg and the shell to separate, making it easy to peel and your center yolk should be bright yellow with no grey coloring. **

Peel shell.


Mix different sauces together in a food processor.

Pour into a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off.

Fill the eggs with mixture.

Sprinkle the Mustard Mixture with paprika and the Lemon Mixture with pepper to tell the difference.

Thanks for reading and eating.

    At a recent wedding reception at the High Cotton in Charleston, SC great deviled eggs were served with drinks prior to sitting down for supper- smoked salmon was used! I’d never had anything like that, so thanks for the recipe and one more good idea with tuna!
