Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by a similar version my mother sometimes makes. She makes more of a sauce to drape over the eggs, which she places in my grandmother's glass deviled egg plate. I like to use Wild Planet's Sustainably Caught Wild Albacore. Not only is it delicious, but it's also low in mercury and sustainably fished. —student epicure
