These Spicy Deviled Eggs are the perfect appetizer or first course for your next picnic, Super Bowl party or lunch!
Seriously now, does anyone really need another deviled egg recipe? You have your Grandma’s special recipe, your mom’s standard recipe, and the one that you based on theirs, which you love best of all.
So why am I featuring another deviled egg recipe? Because this one is amazing. And whoever said a Deviled Egg was amazing. Make this twist on a classic and you’ll become the Spicy Deviled Egg Master of the Universe.
This all began with a gift from my girlfriend & fellow food blogger Christina from Christina’s Cucina. She brought back paprika from Spain because she knows how much I love anything from that wonderful country. I took her Spanish gift and decided to use it to put a global spin on a beloved classic (thanks, Grandma, thanks Mom, thanks Christina).
Here is the line up of ingredients I used.
Everything should be available at your local grocery store with maybe the exception of the wasabi mayonnaise, which came from Trader Joes. If you can’t find wasabi mayo use 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (or mayo) and 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi paste to make a facsimile.
Cut your hard boiled eggs in half horizontally. I am pretty sure that my Grandmother would think this is sacrilegious. A “proper” Midwest Deviled Egg was always cut in half lengthwise.
Scoop out the yolk and put it in a mini food processor and set it aside.
Use a small sieve to sprinkle paprika over eggs.
If too much paprika falls into the bowl of the egg, just scoop it out with a spoon.
Put the wasabi mayonnaise, vinegar, soy sauce and siracha sauce in the mini-food processor with your egg yolks. Puree until well blended and creamy.
Place the yolk mixture into a ziplock bag.
Cut the corner of the bag and pipe the egg mixture into the egg whites.
Sprinkle black sesame seeds on top and look at what you’ve got – the perfect appetizer or first course for your next picnic, trip to the Hollywood Bowl, or summer lunch!
These perfectly spiced treats will simply vanish once you serve them!
Spicy Deviled Eggs
- 6 hard boiled eggs cut in half horizontally with egg yolks removed and set aside
- 1/3 cup Wasabi Mayonnaise or 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt and 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi paste
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon Siracha sauce
- Black sesame seeds for garnish optional
- Paprika - smoked or sweet
Cut boiled eggs in half horizontally and scoop out the yolk into a bowl. Slice off a very thin piece from the bottom of halved eggs to make them sit flat. Pour smoked paprika in a small sifter and sprinkle over eggs half tops.
Combine egg yolks, wasabi mayonnaise, vinegar, soy sauce and siracha sauce in a mini-food processor or blender. Pulse until well blended and creamy.
Place egg mixture into a ziplock bag. Cut the corner of the bag and pipe egg mixture into egg white halves. Garnish with optional sesame seeds.
Servings: 12 deviled eggs
Total time: 20 mins.
So even if you don’t make this recipe exactly like it is, you can take parts of it and add it to your Grandmother’s or Mother’s and make it your own.
For me, that is the joy of cooking.
…and then, she paused for thought.
oh I love this! only you could come up with such a unique take on devilled eggs, Cathy! 🙂

Wow, so beautiful! Good job!
Thanks Nan, I hope you will try them.
Cathy, I am in love with this recipe. LOVE that they’re cut horizontally, love the flavors, the sesame seeds — all of it!
Thanks Valentina. They are fun and tasty anyway you slice them. 🙂

O.k. I must admit, I came to like boiled eggs later in life, but mine always seem to be a little over done or a little underdone. Any suggestions?
Nan, I sous vide my eggs and they come out perfect every time. I know that doesn’t help you much. I have tried everything and this seems to be the only way that works for me.

Well I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who has had inconsistent hard boiled eggs! 🙂
Perfect indeed. So artful and I know delicious. Moms and grandmoms everywhere are in awe. GREG

This spicy deviled eggs recipe so extravagant:) Definitely i’ll try this recipe but I’m afraid I will not find all ingredients! Thx for sharing Cathy!
You can always improvise with any other spicy ingredients to make the eggs. Instead of wasabi, you could use freshly diced jalapeño or any pepper of your choice.
These are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing these! Did you know you should never warm hard boiled eggs in the microwave? I learn this the hard way when I tried biting into one. Ka-boom!
LOL Melody, I didn’t know that! Sounds like that might have been painful. 🙁
I prefer healthy food! And I’ll definitely try these spicy deviled eggs. My husband would love it! Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome Bella, thanks for stopping by!
