Deviled Eggs with Shrimp

Boiled Eggs


  • 1 dozen large eggs


  • Put the eggs in a pot big enough to hold all of your eggs in a single layer. Cover them with cold water just an inch or so over the eggs.
  • Turn the heat on medium-high until the water comes to a full boil.
  • After the water comes to a boil, cover the pot and move off the heat. Set a timer for 13 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off, immediately take the pot to the sink, and pour off the hot water.
  • Run cold tap water over the eggs continuously for several minutes until they begin to cool. Pour off the water.
  • VIGOROUSLY shake your pot so that the egg shells break in several places - Don't worry about pieces of shell,
  • Again run cold tap water into the pot, further allowing the eggs to cool.
  • Under running water, peel each egg, starting at the bottom (there is usually an air bubble there) If all things are right with the world, you should be able to remove the membrane and the shell easily. Rinse with cool water and set aside while peeling the rest,
