Ingredients:

  • 10 eggs
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning plus 1 teaspoon
  • ¼ teaspoon granulated sugar optional
  • 20 medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno thinly sliced
  • fresh chives for garnish
  • lemon slices for garnish

Instructions:

  • In a saucepan large enough to hold the eggs in one layer, cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12 minutes. Drain eggs; run under cold water until cool enough to handle. You can also add a few ice cubes to cool down quickly.10 eggs
  • Peel and halve eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks and transfer to a mixing bowl. Break up the yolks with a fork. Add mayo, mustard, hot sauce, sugar, and 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning, mix until smooth. Chill filling.½ cup mayonnaise,1 tablespoon dijon mustard,1 teaspoon hot sauce,1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning,¼ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • Season the raw shrimp with 1 tablespoon of the Cajun seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron or heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Move shrimp to a plate to stop the cooking process.1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning,20 medium shrimp,2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Using a pastry bag fitted with a large tip pipe yolk mixture into whites. Top with a shrimp, a slice of jalapeno, and garnish with chives. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, or chill for up to 2 hours.1 jalapeno,lemon slices,fresh chives

Note:

  • Instead of piping the filling with a pastry bag and tip, you can use a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off. Or simply spoon it into the egg whites.
  • For spicier eggs add additional diced jalapenos to the yolk mixture.
  • While the sugar is optional I find that it gives a nice balance to the spicy filling.

Make Ahead: Boil the eggs and make the filling up to 2 days in advance. Store separately in tightly sealed containers in the fridge. Cook the shrimp and assemble up to 2 hours before serving.
