Smoked Salmon Scotch Deviled Eggs Recipe

6 Eggs, Hardboiled & peeled
2 eggs, raw
10 oz Smoked Salmon
10 oz Bread crumbs
Oil for frying

4 T Sour Cream
4 oz Goat Cheese
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

1/4 Red onion, sliced thin
Cornichons (can substitute sweet gherkins)

To Scotch:
Heat cooking oil to 350 degrees in a heavy bottom pot or electric fryer. Add smoked salmon to food processor. Chop until smooth. Remove salmon from food processor and place between 2 layers of plastic wrap. Press (or use a rolling pin) salmon between wrap layers until a thin sheet of salmon is formed.  Portion salmon into 6 equal sections. Using your hands, wrap 1 section around 1 hardboiled egg, making sure egg is fully covered Repeat with the other 5 eggs.
Whisk raw eggs in a bowl. Pour bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dredge salmon covered eggs in whisked egg mixture and coat in bread crumbs. Lower eggs into fryer. Fry for approximately 1 minute or until golden brown. Remove from fryer and let cool.

To Devil:
Once cooled, slice eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Blend yolks, sour cream and goat cheese until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Using a pastry bag (or Ziploc bag), pipe yolk mixture into eggs.

To Garnish:
Top eggs with a combination of cornichons, red onion and capers.

    I love smoked salmon, but have never thought to add it to a deviled egg. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. We are big fans of smoked salmon so this would be a new and unique way to serve it. They look so festive and would be nice to have on the table for a holiday get together.

    I have never heard of a recipe like this. I will have to see if my family will eat them. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. I’m the one tasked to do the deviled eggs at family gatherings. While would certainly eat these eggs, I would never have time to make them.

    The devil part is quite different from traditional deviled eggs, I would have never thought to add goat cheese. I have seen recipes for scotch eggs but have never tried it before. They always look so good, but i know I would end up eating way too much of it. I also like the idea of the salmon taste although my husband would turn up his nose (he doesnt care for salmon) Maybe for a get together I will try this.

  7. OMGosh, Carol – this is brilliant. Did you create it yourself? I’m flabbergasted. Why didn’t I think of this?

  8. This recipe sounds fancy and perfect for a party. I so want to make these but am afraid that I will eat them all. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe I have never heard of it before. Happy Halloween.
