Salmon Stuffed Deviled Eggs
- Yield 16 servings
Along with salmon, eggs are a rich source of vitamin D with 41 IU per egg. These deviled eggs contain the ingredients often served with lox or cured smoked salmon; the smoked paprika adds a gentle heat and smokiness. The filling also makes a satisfying sandwich spread when served on pumpernickel bread; chop the egg whites and add them to the filling.
