Egg Salad with Shrimp

 This dish came about when I cooked some fresh eggs and could not get the shells off them, without tearing the whites apart. My original concept was Deviled Eggs topped with Shrimp.

Egg Salad with Shrimp

So I made an egg salad, and added the cooked shrimp to the eggs, and went from there.  I served it alongside some of my home made bread which I toasted and a garlic aoli.  I'll share that recipe soon. 

Egg Salad with Shrimp and toast

 I brought this to the 20th anniversary of a group called NPA.  These ladies, and I include myself, have met every Friday for 20 years. It's a loosely knit group, we women come and go.    Some women have come almost every single Friday, some, like myself have come occasionally. And men are not allowed.  We've celebrated marriages, divorces, mourned with each other, been a support group when needed.  

Everything a group should be.

This is a fun take on regular egg salad. Goes great as an appetizer or a sandwich.


  • 6 Hard Cooked Eggs
  • 12 shrimp - poached - with Lemon Juice and 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 3-4 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1-2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1/2-1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • Dill for decorations
  • Old Bay seasoning for topping


  1. Hard cook the eggs, peel, and then pulse them in a food chopper. 
  2. Poach the shrimp, let cool and then roughly chop them, reserving 1- 2 shrimp for decorations.
  3. Mix the eggs with the mayonnaise and mustard  until just moistened.  You may not need all the mayo and mustard.   Add the Old Bay Seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon at a time and taste.  You can add more or less, depending on what you like.
  4. Fold in the chopped shrimp to the egg mixture and taste for seasoning.  Place in fridge for an hour or two before serving.
  5. When ready to serve, sprinkle a little Old Bay Seasoning on top, and add the reserved shrimp and dill to serve. 
  6. Serve with either toast, crackers or some other bread.
