These SMOKED SALMON DEVILED EGGS are a nice twist on a classic. Guests love them, but we also like to make a batch to keep in the fridge to snack on. So simple, too!
We’ve been really building up our deviled egg recipe collection over here.
Have you noticed all of the crazy recipes we’ve come up with over the last couple of years? A few of the recipes include avocado deviled eggs and deviled eggs with bacon. But there are loads more, if you poke around in the low carb snacks section of my website.
Today, though, I’m bringing you the recipe for my husband’s all time favorite deviled egg…and that’s saying something because the man knows his deviled eggs!
Chad, the husband, doesn’t do a whole lot of cooking for our family. It makes sense, because I enjoy it and I’m good at it.
But these eggs? He will ask me to add the ingredients to our grocery order and then make the eggs himself, because he loves them that much. I honestly think this might be the only food he’s ever made repeatedly, on his own, again and again. He LOVES them!
And really, what’s not to love about smoked salmon, cream cheese, and creamy deviled eggs? Nothing!
Eggs – You’re going to need some large hard boiled eggs for this recipe! You can prepare them however you wish but I would recommend checking the FAQs section below for a method that makes them easy to peel.
Salmon – The strong flavors from smoked salmon mix really well with the creamy deviled egg filling.
Filling – The creamy filling for these smoked salmon deviled eggs is a simple but flavorful mix of cream cheese, mayo, Dijon mustard, the egg yolks, and of course the smoked salmon!
“SO GOOD!!! I only had 5 eggs so I just eyed the ingredients. My three children and I devoured them! The seven year old was late to show up and only got one and she is asking me to make another batch immediately.” – Trina
- Peel – First up you’ll need to prepare the boiled eggs and peel them. See the FAQs section below for some tips! Once peeled slice the eggs in half and start scooping out the yolks to a small mixing bowl. Set the egg whites aside for now.
- Filling – To prepare the filling you’ll just add the softened cream cheese along with the mayo, mustard, and salt to the mixing bowl with the egg yolks. The easiest method to mix it all up is to just mash it together with a fork! Do that until it is smooth and creamy.
- Salmon – To finish preparing the filling you’ll go ahead and add in the key ingredient: The smoked salmon! Just fold that in with the other filling ingredients and you are almost finished.
- Finish – With the filling prepared you can start spooning it into each of the hollowed out egg whites. We usually pack them pretty full with lots of the good creamy filling! To finish off these smoked salmon deviled eggs sprinkle some Old Bay seasoning over the top.
The easiest way to make boiled eggs that peel like a dream is to just use an Instant Pot! I’ve tested just about every other method and I can honestly say that this is the best! We do the 5-5-5 method. Just place however many eggs you want in the Instant Pot, add 1 cup of water, and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Natural release for 5 minutes. Place in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Easy peasy!
Stored in the refrigerator, deviled eggs are safe to keep for 2 days. When we want deviled eggs all week, we boil enough eggs to make that happen and then just whip up a batch every couple days.
We prefer these smoked salmon deviled eggs made with cold smoked salmon. Cold smoked salmon is smoked at a lower temperature than hot smoked salmon and tends to be much more moist and smooth, while hot smoked salmon is more flaky and can be a bit drier. Either cold or hot smoked salmon will work here, so just grab what you prefer!
