Smoked Salmon and Dill Deviled Eggs

A tray of 4 different deviled eggs, Smoked Salmon and Dill, Avocado Tarragon, Pesto with Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Truffled Bacon

If you haven't heard, I'm doing an awesome giveaway over this Easter week! To enter, you have to post a photo of something you made from Celebrations. Click here to read the full rules and see the prizes! This is what 3 lucky people will win!



I know some of you don't have a copy of the book yet and hope to win it in the giveaway, so I'm sharing a sneak peek recipe here! In case you didn't know, the recipes that are in my books typically are not here on the blog, so this is a special treat! So for those that don't yet have Celebrations, you can make these Smoked Salmon and Dill Deviled Eggs and post them over the weekend to enter! Or you can also make the Poached Pears that I also posted from the book here on the blog. Lastly, Amazon offers a few preview recipes from the book so you could take a look there and make something from that too for your entry! While you're there, the book is 40% off so do yourself and grab a copy before the next big holiday (Mother's Day!) comes up so you're prepared to host fabulous grain-free celebrations.

In the book, these delicious dairy-free and paleo Deviled Eggs, Four Ways can be found in the Baby/Bridal Shower chapter, however, I think they work well as hors d'oeuvres for ANY occasion. I bring them to Easter brunch, serve them as a starter for Thanksgiving, or bring them for potlucks for Summer holidays like the 4th of July. There's a chapter for each of those holidays in the book, but I had to only pick 1 to include the eggs! The recipe has 4 different recipes for Deviled Eggs within it, including Smoked Salmon and Dill, Avocado Tarragon, Pesto with Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Truffled Bacon, but I'm going to share the smoked salmon one with you today because it's perfect for Easter.

Also, the instructions in the book call for my former preferred method of hard boiling eggs, however, after trying them in the electric pressure cooker, I think I will forever do them that way! They peel SO easily. So I'm including instructions for that here for you.

Bring these to your Easter brunch this weekend and I promise your dish will be gone before anything else!

So what other Spring-time recipes will you see in Celebrations that you could make for Easter? Here's just a sampling!

Smoked Salmon and Dill Deviled Eggs



Cuisine: American

Category: Appetizers

PREP TIME: 10 mins

COOK TIME: 5 mins TOTAL TIME: 15 mins


  • 12 large eggs
  • 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise (there’s a homemade recipe on page 328 or buy this one)
  • 1⁄4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced, for garnish (check ingredients closely to ensure it’s free of sugar and artificial additives)
  • 1 tablespoon capers, for garnish


  1. To prepare the eggs, add 1 1/2 cups water to an electric pressure cooker (I use this Instantpot). Place as many eggs as you can in a single layer to fill the bottom of a steamer basket or on the wire rack that comes with the machine. Depending on the size of your machine, you may need to do these in 2 batches. Secure the lid, and be sure to set the nozzle to pressure. Set the machine to manual for 5 minutes at high pressure. It will take the pressure cooker a few minutes to build to pressure and then the timer will start counting down. Once the timer is done, do a quick pressure release. Place the hot eggs into cool water to halt the cooking process and make them cool enough to handle. Peel immediately, or place them in the fridge if you are making the deviled eggs the next day.
  2. Dry the outsides and slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Put the yolks in a bowl and set aside for the filling. Place the whites on a serving platter, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to fill.
  3. To make the smoked salmon filling, combine the hard-boiled egg yolks, mayonnaise, coconut milk, dill, parsley, mustard, chives, onion powder, and salt in a bowl. Mash the mixture until well combined and smooth. To get it super smooth, use an immersion blender. Spoon the mixture into a large zip-top bag and snip off a hole in the bottom corner. Pipe the mixture into the egg whites and garnish with the smoked salmon and capers.
