- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 5 pieces of spicy salted kilka
- 1 clove of garlic
- salt - according to your taste

In order to cook delicious eggs with fish filling, it is imperative to use only fresh and natural products. Pour over heated fresh eggs at room temperature for 1 hour (I do not advise you to cook straight from the refrigerator, they will burst) with cold water and boil them hard-boiled for 10 minutes, adding a pinch of salt and baking soda (if you cook white eggs with a thin shell). In general, for cooking (they have a hard shell), I advise you to buy brown eggs with a CO mark - this is a selected variety, for stuffing it is the very thing. For those with high blood pressure, I recommend using it from young hens, they are low in cholesterol. When cooked, chill them under cold water, peel and cut in half lengthwise. Remove the fillet from the kilka, throw it into a blender, add boiled yolks, tuna without liquid, crushed garlic, a little salt and pepper to it, beat until smooth. Try on salt and pepper. Put the resulting mass into a pastry syringe and squeeze out of proteins into boats. Cook and you will fall in love with them!
