Salted Egg Recipe. This is a different way on musing that extra salted egg aside from just simply serving it as is.
SALTED EGG RECIPE
I am excited to share this salted egg recipe today because not only that it is simple, it has a little twist from the usual way of eating salted egg. Usually, salted egg is eaten paired with Tocino and Longanisa. Just open it, gouge the meat out from the shell and it is ready. There is no denying that it is still salty and taste great and just perfect for my Filipino palate. Today, we are making something different. Salted egg salad. That means we are adding some flavor in it… gone is the day of plain Salted egg! Let’s add mayonnaise and lemon juice in it.
I was not a Salted Egg fan until I married my husband. I only tasted it for the first time when he encouraged me to try it. After that, there is no turning back. Saying I love it is an understatement. My kids however paint a different story. They don’t like it when eating plain so I created this Salted egg recipe to obscure the putrid smell and is able to make the kids eat it.
Once again, before you buy your own pack, I got to warn you though, that when you open the egg, there is a putrid smell; but using this recipe the smell is gently obscured by the mayonnaise and lemon, so I think you will enjoy it. Now that I think about it, the smell is almost similar to goat cheese. So if you are a goat cheese fan, I think you can handle the salted egg smell. Just try in once just for kicks.
What is Salted Egg?
Salted egg are preserved egg duck in soaked in a brine. I have been wanting to make my own salted egg, but set it aside for the future due to time constraint. You can buy salted egg from an Asian store or order them online. It is very cheap and non perishable, so whenever we go to Portland we buy 4 packs to stock for future use. You can find them in the cold section in your Asian store near eggs, butter and preserve veggies.
4 pieces salted egg
1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise add more if you want to
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup tomato chopped
1/8 cup yellow onion chopped

How do You Make it?
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until salted egg is coated with the mayonnaise. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve with Broiled Mackerel

This is certainly new to me. I’ve never heard or seen salted eggs. I’m always excited about trying new cuisines. Now that we’ve moved to a bigger city I’ll have to look for them and try out your recipe.

I have never eaten salted eggs. Seen them often is supermarkets when I lived In Singapore. This sounds so delicious. Need to look for these next time I’m around a grocer that sells Asian food. Saving for later.

ever had it that way but by reading this recipe I will love it. Egg salad is my favorite sandwich period and with these other additions over the top sandwich is born!
I’ve never heard of salted egg before or tried any form of duck egg. It’s great you found a way to deal with the smell in a wy that helps give a flavor you like.
I have never heard of a “salted egg”. I have worked with duck eggs in the past, and they are delicious. I will have to experiment here and look into this “salted egg” thing. I love trying new cuisines…and this looks great.
