I am constantly making recipes that are quick, easy yummy and healthy for me and my family. These days, I’ve been eating less big meals and snacking more. It’s been Think of simple and complicated flavors in one dish. Boiled eggs with salmon caviar – the perfect symphony of tastes and textures brimming with healthy goodness. Let the facts enlighten.
Did you know? Hard boiled eggs are healthy weight-loss friends. Protein-packed, these seemingly simple kitchen staples restrain your appetite to eat more on your next meal. That feeling of fullness is in fact a truth because an egg is filled with:
*78 calories, 6.3 grams of protein, 0.6 grams of carbohydrate and 5.3 grams of fat = 8 percent of the daily value for fat and saturated fat and 13 percent of the daily value for protein.
*11 percent of the daily value for vitamin D (for healthy immune function and to absorb calcium for strong bones), 10 percent for vitamin B-12 and 9 percent for phosphorus (both essential for forming DNA and healthy red blood cells to transport oxygen around your body).
Tip: If you’re avoiding cholesterol in your diet, don’t eat the egg yolk.
Now about salmon caviar, aside from its richness in Omega-3, a serving is a good source of Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Iron, Magnesium and Selenium. Plus, the flavor of both intricate and basic combine so deliciously.
Hard Boiled Egg With Salmon Caviar
Truffle oil (optional)
Salt & white pepper
For osetra snobs, salmon caviar isn’t real caviar: they are eggs of wild sturgeons. I am anything but a food snob so any fish eggs that are succulent is caviar in my books!
Step 1: Boil eggs
Whoever said that boiling an egg is simple is quite mistaken. But I have learned from the best! Here are mentor tips from Martha Stewart on how to boil the perfect hard boiled egg:
Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Slowly bring water to a boil over medium heat; when the water has reached a boil, cover and remove from heat. Let sit 12 minutes. Transfer eggs to a colander; place under cool running water to stop the cooking. Eggs can be peeled and served immediately.
Step 3: Peel eggshells
Step 4: Admire the golden yolk. Pat your back for a job well done then let’s continue with the recipe.
Step 5: Chop the eggs into small bite-size cubes
Step 6: Season with salt, white pepper and drizzle truffle oil (optional). Gently mix the eggs.
Step 7: I suggest that you refrigerate it for 15 minute then serve cold on top of Cracklebread or any low-sodium or gluten-free crackers.
Eggs + Salmon roe = Two great sources of vitamins and minerals in an easy to make delightful dish. Try it!
You can eat this anytime of the day plus, very little cooking skills are involved. LOL
