  1. Oh yeah, this reminded me that we have to eat our eggs from Easter. Guess I’ll serve them with dinner tonight. 🙂

  2. Smoked salmon in deviled eggs would make my youngest son, probably both my son’s, very happy. I must try this soon! This recipe looks delicious!

  3. What a great idea to add smoked salmon (in my case Nova since I really do not like the taste of salt)to a deviled egg mixture. It would make the perfect snack or lunch or appetizers for a party!

  4. We didn’t color eggs at my house either. My little one isn’t big enough to enjoy it yet so it’s on hold for another year or 2. These deviled eggs sound so yummy! My husband will probably LOVE these!

  5. We are still going strong on coloring our eggs each Easter, though I can see a time when that will come to a screeching halt in the not too distant future.:-(

    Smoked salmon and capers pair so beautifully with deviled eggs. I could easily eat two or three of these as a meal.

    Beautiful photographs too!
