Ingredients

  • 2 dozen quail eggs*
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • About 1 tbsp. wasabi paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup furikake*

Preparation

  1. 1. Put quail eggs in a medium pot and cover with 2 in. cold water. Over high heat, bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Drain eggs and transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Crack shells all over, return to water, and let sit 2 minutes (this loosens the shells). Peel eggs.
  2. 2. Combine mayonnaise, wasabi to taste, sesame oil, soy sauce, and salt in a small bowl. Put furikake in another small bowl. Serve both with eggs for dunking.
  3. *Find quail eggs at Asian and farmers' markets and furikake--a savory mix of sesame seeds, seaweed, and dried fish--at well-stocked grocery stores, Japanese markets, and amazon.com
