We all really enjoyed these Cod Liver Deviled Eggs. Well, except for my daughter. She couldn’t have them because she’s allergic to all fish and shellfish, unfortunately. I will have to make it up to her and make seafood-free deviled eggs. Stay tuned for those!
Hubby had a few of the deviled eggs and said it would make a great dinner party appetizer dish.
My parents tried these too, of course (they are also my taste testers sometimes!). Dad loved them and said “very nice” (it’s our family inside joke, that grandpa always just says “very nice” when he likes something). My mom, who likes to get ideas about different dishes she can make for their group of friends during their weekly weekend gatherings, made the recipe that same weekend! I guess it’s safe to assume that the recipe was a hit!
So, after the positive reviews of my taste testers and critics, I decided to share it with you.
Why I love this recipe:
- It’s super healthy! Omega 3’s, antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and D, folate, protein, and so many other nutrients!
- Super easy to prepare, as you’ll see below
- Looks impressive on a dinner party table
- Can be enjoyed as a healthy snack too
Main Ingredients for the Cod Liver Deviled Eggs:
Really simple 4 ingredients:
- Eggs: You will need hard boiled eggs (cooked for about 7-8 minutes) I love Natasha’s Kitchen instructions on How to Cook Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs.
- Dill: fresh dill enhances the dish and adds a little color to the deviled eggs.
- Red onion: adds a little more flavor and color. Add as much, or as little as you like. I usually add about 1 tablespoon of chopped red onion, otherwise the onion taste overtakes all other flavors.
- Cod Liver: Use canned cod liver, in its oil. Cod liver is super healthy. Plus, there is no need to add mayonnaise. This is the one I use:
How to prepare the Cod Liver Deviled Eggs:
So this is an easy, four-step, process:
- Boil the eggs, cool in ice water bath.
- Peel the eggs, slice in half (lenghtwise) and remove egg yolks
- Add egg yolks and cod liver (with its oil) to a mixing bowl and mash. Add the chopped dill and onions. Mix well to combine.
- Pipe or spoon the filling into each egg white.
Make it a Cod Liver snack:
The Cod Liver filling for the deviled eggs is almost like a pâté. It so good to spread on a cracker, slice of bread or baguette. It’s a really healthy snack. There are so many health benefits in cod liver oil, eggs, dill and red onion. Why not make a quick spread and enjoy it for lunch and as a snack?
