I love deviled eggs. Love. I always say, “It’s not a party at my house without deviled eggs.” It’s hard to beat the classic rendition, but every now and then I’ll mix things up. I came up with this recipe for a dinner I cooked at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, where I topped them with fried oysters. They’re obviously delicious that way (anything fried, am I right?), but I like them just as well without the garnish. I’ve made them with lemon and capers so many times now, I have almost forgotten what they taste like plain!



  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil over high heat. With a ladle, slowly lower the eggs into the water, one by one. Reduce the heat to a low boil and cook for 10 minutes. Drain. When they are cool enough to handle, peel the eggs.
  2. Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place them in a food processor. Arrange the whites, cut-side up, on a serving platter. Blitz the egg yolks by themselves for about 10 seconds. To the yolks, add the mayo, mustard, capers, salt, pepper, garlic and lemon zest. Process until well blended and smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag, then use scissors to snip off the tip of one of the bottom corners to form a small hole. Pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites or store the egg whites and yolk mixture separately in the fridge until ready to fill and serve, one to two days. Garnish the filled eggs with paprika and parsley and serve immediately.
