Smoked Salmon and Avocado Deviled Eggs

When it comes to avocados, I like to fuss with them as little as possible, enabling their natural beauty and richness to sing for itself. This recipe showcases the inherent creaminess and sweetness of avocado by pairing it with two other indulgent ingredients: eggs and smoked salmon. Incredibly rich and decadent, there little bites will vanish at our next cocktail party before you know it. Rich, salty crab and bacon would be beautiful toppings here as well!


6 large eggs , boiled, cooled, peeled, and cut in half

1 large ripe avocado

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon lime juice

1 teaspoon fresh dill , plus more for garnish, finely chopped

1 1/2 oz. cold-smoked salmon

Flaky sea salt (I like Maldon here) and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Carefully, scoop out the yolks from the eggs. Set white halves aside. Place the yolks, avocado, mayonnaise, mustard, lime juice, dill, and spices in a food processor. Process until blended and smooth. Scoop the mixture into a bag and pipe into the empty egg halves. Top each egg half with some smoked salmon and garnish with some dill.
