Oni (Devil's) Eggs



This variation of regular deviled eggs is absolutely delicious and a nice party appetizer as people don't really make proper deviled eggs anymore. Oni means Devil in Japanese so the name is my little joke for the use of wasabi.


Use any furikake (dried seaweed condiment) you can find (I used a dried uni and sesame one), or use dried bonito flakes as a topping instead.


This recipe makes 4 eggs worth



4 organic eggs

1 Tbsp mayonnaise ( I use Hellman's)

1 tsp wasabi paste (more according to taste if needed)

1 Tbsp furikake or dried bonito flakes



Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the eggs and boil for eight minutes.


Drain and add to a bowl of water filled with ice to stop the cooking.


Peel and cut in half.


Gently remove the yolks from the whites and add the yolks to a bowl.


Add the wasabi and mayonnaise to the yolks and whisk into a smooth paste. Taste and add more wasabi paste if you prefer more heat.


Spoon the yolk mixture back into the egg whites, or pipe them if you are handy, which I am not.


Sprinkle with the furikake or bonito flakes.
