Ever since I learned how easy it is to make hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, I’ve been playing around with deviled egg variations. This recipe for Crab Avocado Deviled Eggs was inspired by one of our favorite restaurants, The Hammond, in Camas, Washington.

They’ve had California Roll style deviled eggs on their menu for as long as I can remember, but I finally gave them a try a few weeks ago. Even though they sounded amazing, the thing holding me back was that Rick absolutely refuses to eat deviled eggs. In reality, he won’t eat eggs prepared any way other than scrambled. So, I knew that if I ordered them, I’d be responsible for eating the entire portion myself.

I threw in the towel after three eggs, but I was instantly hooked on their yummy flavor. So, I set out to recreate them at home. And today I’m here to share this yummy recipe with you! I wasn’t sure what to call them – Crabby Deviled Eggs? Wasabi Deviled Eggs? California Roll Style Deviled Eggs? So, I’ll leave that final decision up to you. But I do hope that  you give these Crab Deviled Eggs a try because they are so good!

Crab Deviled Eggs Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make these avocado deviled eggs:

  • Hard Boiled Eggs: If you’ve got one, be sure to try out these Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs for the easiest method.
  • Mayonnaise: This helps to make your deviled eggs extra creamy.
  • Wasabi Paste: I blended a couple teaspoons of wasabi paste into my yolks for a spicy kick. If you are sensitive to heat, you can halve this amount, or leave it out entirely.
  • Crab: I used local dungeness crab, but any crab will work. Or you can substitute cooked shrimp.
  • Avocado: Essential for the California Roll vibe we’re going for here.
  • Cucumber Slices: Add a delicious, refreshing crunch.
  • Radish: I love the bright pop of contrasting color from the red radish, but this is totally optional.
  • Black Sesame Seeds: Again, totally optional, but I love the flavor they add and that extra bit of garnish.

How Far Ahead Can I Make Crab Deviled Eggs?

  • You can make deviled eggs up to 2 days before you plan to serve them. However, I would leave off the toppings until right before you plan to serve them.

Are Deviled Eggs Keto?

  • Yes! As long as the mayonnaise you’re using is keto-friendly, these deviled eggs are keto approved.
