12 Delicious Salted Duck Egg Recipes

Have you ever tried salted duck eggs? They are quite common in Asia where it is usually added on salads or congee. On its own this thing is barely palatable, unless you can eat something salty straight up, but if its mixed with something else, I can be very delicious. Recently this ingredient has taken some limelight in the foodie world, food manufacturers start using it as a flavour to potato chips and fish skin and it became a big hit, emptying shelves on where they are sold. Since then a lot of dishes started using the salted duck eggs, specifically the yolks as it has that addictive taste that is full of umami but do you know they do exist before in older Asian recipes, it just happens that it became widely accepted when the commercially manufactured junk foods came out.

Now there are many ways to get this flavour, originally you get them from the salted duck eggs as a whole, now you can buy just the yolk alone or even in powdered form, so you don’t feel guilty that you’re throwing the whites out. Like I said on its own its very salty but when mixed with something else, it becomes this creamy, eggy, salty, grainy ingredient that coats anything that it is used on, it’s so addictive, it’s hard to stop, eating them. If you can’t relate to this, I suggest you try those chips or fish skin first, then you will know. I am confident that you will like them as I had tried letting my colleagues and friends who haven’t tried it yet and all of them gave two thumbs up.

    Thanks so much for all these recipes. I am on a Paleo regime and quite a few of these can be adapted for my needs. I have a dozen duck eggs still in brine for 49 days. Time to use them up.
    Should I put them in the fridge now?

      Salt is a natural preservative so it can stay really long even if it’s not refrigerated as long as it is hard-boiled first. Not sure how long but I had seen people who have homemade ones store it at room temperature for a month. Just to be on the safe side, once the eggs are boiled, store them in the refrigerator, it will definitely last longer than the ones outside.
