  • 9 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sweet relish
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Smoked paprika, for sprinkling
  • 18 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning, such as Tony Chachere’s
  • (note that some brands of seasoning contain more salt than others)


  1. Cut each egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and transfer them to a medium bowl. Place the egg whites on a serving platter and set them aside.
  2. Mash the yolks with a fork. Stir in the mayonnaise, relish, mustard, salt, and pepper. Scoop an equal amount into each egg white half with a small spoon. Sprinkle smoked paprika on top of each deviled egg.
  3. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the shrimp.
  4. Give the shrimp a quick rinse in a colander under running water, then drain. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel, then transfer to another medium bowl. Sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning and toss to coat.
  5. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until the butter starts to shimmer. Swirl the butter around so that it coats the bottom of the skillet evenly.
  6. Add the shrimp in a single layer and cook for 45 seconds. Flip and cook until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, 45 to 60 seconds. Remove the shrimp from the heat and set it aside.
  7. When ready to serve, top each deviled egg with 1 shrimp.



  • For the best flavor, use fresh eggs that are a week old. If you purchased directly from the grocery store, they are already aged perfectly.
  • If you don’t have a piping bag, you can spoon the mixture into the egg whites.
  • To make boiled eggs easier to peel, add a teaspoon of baking soda to the water.
  • Allow the filling to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge before topping it with the shrimp.
  • Make a few extra shrimp so you can test them for doneness.
