Mitch Prensky, chef-owner at Supper (now closed) in Philadelphia, shared this recipe with us. Hard-boiled egg yolks are mashed with mayonnaise, Sriracha, Dijon mustard, lime juice, and cilantro, then scooped into the hard-boiled egg whites and topped with pickled carrots or daikon, for an Asian-inspired riff on deviled eggs.
Game plan: You’ll need to make the mayonnaise before you begin. High-quality store-bought mayo would work fine too.
