Deviled Eggs – angry yolk whip, paprika, chives and black sea salt

12 eggs

1 tablespoon white vinegar

½ cup mayonnaise

½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice

¼ teaspoon togarashi*

Black Hawaiian-Style Sea Salt

Bring two quarts of water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Add white vinegar and 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Carefully lower eggs into boiling water using a large spoon. Boil eggs for 14 minutes. While eggs are boiling, prepare an ice bath in a medium bowl with half ice and half cold water. When time is up, remove eggs from hot water and place in ice water bath. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes. Crack egg shells and carefully peel eggs. Slice eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks and placing in a medium bowl. Rinse egg whites under cool running water and pat dry on paper towels. Place whites on serving plate. Using a fork, mash yolks into a fine crumble. Stir in mayonnaise, lemon juice, togarashi, chives, black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Adjust seasoning if needed. Place yolk mix in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Evenly distribute yolk mix between egg white halves. Sprinkle with pinch of each chives, paprika and black Hawaiian-style sea salt and serve.
