Japanese Deviled Eggs are a delightful twist on the classic recipe, introducing a fusion of Asian flavors. They boast a creamier texture than traditional deviled eggs, and the best part is, they require just 10 minutes of prep time. Whether you serve them as an appetizer or a protein-packed snack, they’re sure to impress with their unique taste.
How to make Japanese Deviled Eggs?
- Start by boiling the eggs in a pot until hard-boiled. Then, swiftly transfer them to cold water to cool and make peeling a breeze. Once peeled, cut each egg in half, and carefully remove the yolks.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the yolks with a luscious mixture of mayo, soy sauce, mustard, rice vinegar, and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Mix until you achieve a smooth, velvety texture.
- Transfer the yolk mixture into a ziplock bag, expelling any excess air before sealing. Then, snip a small corner or use a piping bag to squeeze the flavorful yolk mixture onto the egg whites.
- Finally, dress these deviled eggs with sliced jalapeño and finely chopped green onions, adding a hint of sharpness and zest to each delectable bite.
Make sure the water is boiling in the pot before placing eggs inside. Otherwise, it will be difficult to peel off the shell.

Japanese Deviled Eggs
- Gather all the ingredients.
- Make 6 hard boiled eggs.
- Next, thinly slice 12 slices of jalapeno, remove seeds and set aside.
- Fine chop green onions and set aside.
- Cut hard boiled eggs in half, remove egg yolk (the yellow portion) with either a spoon or your thumb and place into a mixing bowl. Note - yoke should just fall out with minimal effort.
- Add Kewpie Mayo, Soy Sauce, yellow mustard, Rice Vinegar, a sprinkle of salt & pepper and mix all together with a fork. It's extremely important that each ingredient is measured out, otherwise, the texture will be off. After mixing, you should have something that represents a potato salad texture. If it's runny, you'll need to add more cooked egg yolk and if it's dry, you'll need to add more mayo.
- Transfer egg mix into a ziplock bag. Remove as much air as you can by twisting the bag to form a cone shape, seal, and then cut a small corner off the bottom of the ziplock bag.
- Plate egg whites with concave portion facing upwards.
- Squeeze yolk mix into the concave portion of the egg whites and top with jalapeno slices and green onions.
