You may recall my zero-effort kimchi pickled eggs. You can make this recipe with regular boiled eggs or my magical spicy ones. Either way you're in for some fermented cabbage goodness.

I love a great blank canvas, and deviled eggs are just that. Their twist-friendly format just begs for specialty ingredients like truffles, exotic spices and caviar. Or in this case, a much more affordable option found at any Asian supermarket: tobiko, flying fish roe. You may have seen it adorning your sushi, but wait til you see what it does to this picnic classic. Prepare to impress your guests.
