Here’s Erich’s absolute favorite creation. It’s smooth and satisfying and a way to get more out of your smoked salmon than just eating it plain on a piece of baguette.

 

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 oz smoked salmon
  • 2 Tbsp  mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp chives, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp shallots, chopped
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper

Grate eggs using the wide side cheese grater…this will make them amazingly fluffy! If any larger chunks break off, simply chop them into small pieces with a knife. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together with a fork. Spread mixture over your favorite soft bread and enjoy!

This variation by Erich brings your palate alive. It’s zesty and you can adjust the heat level to your liking by adding more horseradish or wasabi.
