Wasabi Deviled Eggs with Roe and Crispy Nori

Mitch Prensky, chef-owner at Supper (now closed) in Philadelphia, shared this recipe with us. Hard-boiled egg yolks are mashed with lime juice, mayonnaise, Chinese mustard, and wasabi, then scooped into the hard-boiled egg whites and topped with deep-fried nori strips and fish roe, for an Asian-inspired riff on deviled eggs.

What to buy: Chinese mustard, wasabi paste, nori (dried seaweed), roe, and unagi can be found in Asian markets.

    Snapware Snap 'N Stack 2 Layer Food Storage w/ Egg Holder Trays

    Even if you prefer to arrange your deviled eggs on a cut-crystal serving platter, if you have to transport them to a potluck or party, you're better off with something a bit sturdier. This two-tiered storage and carrying container securely cradles up to 24 egg halves without smushing the filling.
