The preparation of Cyril Lignac’s original mimosa eggs
Do you have all the ingredients? Here are the preparation steps to follow to prepare Cyril Lignac’s wasabi mimosa eggs, they will be ready in 30 minutes:
- To start, bring a pot of water to a boil before adding your eggs. Let them cook for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on their size. It is important that at the end of cooking the eggs are well cooked and hard, so that they can mix well with the other ingredients.
- After cooking, transfer the eggs to a water bath with ice cubes. When they are cold, peel them in water and then place them on a plate. Book.
- Now move on to preparing the mayonnaise sauce. Mix the mustard and egg yolk in a bowl using a hand whisk. Then add the grapeseed oil in a trickle, little by little, while continuing to mix to allow the mayonnaise to rise. Finally, add the wine vinegar and mix well.
- Peel the wasabi root and grate it with the Microplane. Add it to the mayonnaise and, if desired, add a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Finely chop the chives after having washed and dried them. Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half, being careful to keep the white intact, since you will need it for the presentation of your deviled eggs. Take the egg yolks and grate them into a bowl. Add ¾ to the mayonnaise, mix gently and, to finish, also incorporate the chives.
- Transfer the wasabi mayonnaise to a piping bag. Divide it among the half-hard-boiled egg whites. Finish by sprinkling with grated egg and adding a few pieces of tuna in olive oil.
- This gourmet deviled egg recipe lends itself to several variations, according to tastes and desires! If you prefer, the tuna in olive oil can be replaced with prawns, caviar or even grated black truffle. How about preparing it to impress your guests at the next brunch at home?
