Egg & Tuna Salad
6 eggs, hard boiled
1 small can tuna, flaked
2 stalks celery, sliced finely
4 tablespoon mayonnaise
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Remove the shell off and then carefully cut into the pointed end of the eggs. From this incision, delicately take out the yolks.
- Set aside the outer egg white as these will be used as an outer casing for the stuffing later on.
- Mash the egg yolks in a bowl. Finely chop the egg whites cut off from the pointed end of the boiled eggs and then add these to the mashed yolks.
- Mix in the tuna and celery.
- Add the mayonnaise. Give it a good stir.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Now divided this tuna and egg stuffing and use this to fill in the egg white casings. Keep everything tidy.
- Serve in a bed of shredded lettuce.

Tamagoyaki is a Japanese egg roll. It is pretty easy to make with practice. This is just like the Korean egg roll.
Below is a recipe from www.japanese101, where a video of how to make it is easily available.
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp Mirin (or 1/4 tsp sugar)
- 1 tsp oil
- Mix eggs, salt, soy sauce and Mirin in a bowl.
- Heat a pan at medium high temperature and add oil. (A rectangular Tamagoyaki pan is best, but a round pan can work as well.)
- Pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the pan, tilting to cover the bottom of the pan. After the thin egg has set a little, gently roll into a log. Start to roll when the bottom of the egg has set and there is still liquid on top. If you let the egg cook too much, it will not stick as you roll the log. Now you have a log at one end of the pan. Pour some more egg mixture to again cover the bottom of the pan, with the roll of egg at the end. After the new layer has set, roll the log back onto the the cooked thin egg and roll to the other end of the pan.
- Repeat adding egg to the pan and rolling back and forth until the egg is used up.
- Remove from the pan and cool for 3-4 minutes.
- Slice the ends of the log off and then slice the log into 1/2″ pieces. You should see a nice spiral pattern in the cross section of the egg.
