Deviled eggs with faux roe

Didn't we all have deviled eggs our mothers made? One difference is that we never had caviar. Well, you're not getting it with these eggs either. Hard boil your eggs, rinse in cold water and peel. Cut in half and scoop out the yolks. Mix them with some mayo and mustard, salt and pepper and stuff it back into the naked egg whites. Now comes the fun part. Cook a small amount of Israeli couscous. Let it cool and then soak it in fish sauce. Drain it and stir some red food coloring into it. The whole idea is to pretend you're making eggs with salmon roe. The topmost photo shows salmon roe, albeit in a pretty small way. This was fun and whimsical. Those are two things I aspire to be every day. Scoop some of your "faux roe" onto the tops of the eggs.

What a great idea!! You get the same basic texture and flavor without the cost! Genius!!

Lovely idea with the faux roe! A lot more cost effective too =)

Yeah, my mom never did caviar either. We were lucky to get paprika on ours!

I LOVE the "faux roe" idea. But in my head I kept hearing it pronounced by George Jetson's dog, Astro.
