Grate Salt-Cured Egg Yolks Over Dishes


salt cured yolks

How beautiful are these golden, jewel-toned yolks! A few years ago I came across a recipe for Salt Cured Egg Yolks and gave them a try. It’s a fun way to preserve extra yolks, a tasty way to finish off dishes with a little extra flavor, and they make great gifts for all of your foodie friends and family.

Salt curing is nothing new, it's a very traditional way of preserving food. I found some recipes that had mostly sugar, with a little salt; some with mostly salt, with a little sugar; some with flavored salts.

I believe that when it comes to food, if you use good ingredients, there is no need to complicate a good thing. For me, simple is best. For example: I like chocolate-chip cookies, I'm not really a fan of chocolate chip-pumpkin-caramel-butterscotch cookies. It's too much, just keep it simple friends! So for this recipe, I stayed simple: salt and egg yolk. That's it. You can do what you like, this is just how I did it.

The result is nothing short of delicious! Just as you would grate Parmesan cheese over a dish, grate these salt cured yolks over meat, pasta, salad or veggies for a salty, savory and rich garnish. In addition to flavor, you’ll get added nutrition as chicken egg yolks are rich in healthy saturated fat, phospholipids, antioxidants {such as carotenoids and phosvitin}, Vitamins A, D, E, B1 {Thiamin}, B2 {Riboflavin}, B6, B9 {Folate}, B12, Choline, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Zinc and Selenium.
