The fresher the egg, the harder it is to peel the shell off once it’s hard-boiled, so use eggs that are at least five days old. When slicing the eggs in half, wet the knife to help ensure a clean cut through the yolk.
4 large eggs, hard-boiled
1-1/4 Tbsp (19 mL) low-fat mayonnaise
1 green onion, finely sliced
Big pinch curry powder
Small pinch ground ginger
1/2 tsp (2 mL) lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Small pinch cayenne pepper
8 cilantro sprigs
Cool eggs thoroughly. Peel off shells; gently slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to a small mixing bowl and set whites aside. To yolks, add mayonnaise, green onion, curry powder, ginger and lime juice. Mash together with a fork until smooth; season to taste with salt and pepper. Carefully spoon equal amounts of yolk mixture into egg white cavities. Sprinkle tops of filled eggs with cayenne and garnish with a cilantro sprig.
