Smoked whitefish salad on a toasted bagel is a brunch-time greatest hit. Ditto smoked fish with eggs. When there’s leftover whitefish, but no more bagels (or I’ve already consumed my weight in carbs,) I sometimes slather it on hard boiled eggs. From there, this spin on deviled eggs invented itself. (*Whitefish salad is a Jewish appetizing counter classic, hence ‘dibbuk’ – the devil’s Yiddish cousin.) —amysarah
Smoked whitefish salad (best quality, or homemade)
Chopped fresh dill
Prepared white horseradish (or to taste)
In This Recipe
Halve the eggs lengthwise, and scrape the yolks into a bowl. Mash well.
Stir the whitefish salad into the mashed yolks. If the mixture seems too thick, add mayonnaise to loosen it a bit. Mix in the dill, and horseradish to taste - start with a little bit - and blend well.
Mound the mixture into the egg white halves. If you’re fancy, pipe it in. Sprinkle a little chopped dill, or chives, on top. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
