Avocado, Anchovy, Caviar Deviled Eggs

An unexpected trio of flavors combines perfectly to create a wonderfully silky and irresistible deviled egg; avocado brings texture while anchovy adds a deep base note and salt. A garnish of trout roe echoes the subtle fishy flavors.

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 mashed avocado
  • 3/4 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • Trout roe


  1. In a medium saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12 minutes. Drain eggs; run under cold water until cool enough to handle.

  2. Peel and halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and transfer to a bowl. Mash with a fork; mix in mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Press through a sieve to make smooth. Stir avocado and anchovy paste into yolk mixture. Press through sieve again.

  3. Using a pastry bag fitted with desired tip (we used plain and star tips), pipe yolk mixture into whites. Garnish with trout roe. Serve immediately, or chill up to 2 hours.

Cook's Notes

Instead of piping the filling with a pastry bag and tip, you can use a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off. Or simply spoon it into the egg whites.
