Did you know that, not only do our beloved Seahawks eat eggs from Stokesberry Sustainable Farm, but they also eat albacore tuna from Fishing Vessel St. Jude, and they are even making a special dish for the Hawks using both ingredients! “We have been selling [tuna] to the Seattle Seahawks this past year,” said Joyce Malley, who owns F/V St Jude with her husband, Joe. “They make a deviled egg (3 halves) with our tuna that contain 19 grams of protein,” which is a perfect protein portion for any Super Bowl champ!

This recipe is our Market Master’s version of the Tuna Salad with a Kick developed by F/V St. Jude’s owner.  The ingredients below are those used by the Seahawks’ team chef. Super Bowl Party Devil’d Eggs with Albacore Serves 4-6 Hard boil eggs by placing eggs in pan of cold water. Place the pan on high heat and boil for 3 minutes. Turn heat off, and leave eggs sitting in hot water for 5-8 minutes, depending on size of eggs used (the larger the eggs, the longer the time). Then immediately rinse with cold water to stop cooking, and place in refrigerator until ready to peel and use.

  • 4 eggs (2 per person) from Stokesberry Sustainable Farm
  • 1 – 6 oz can albacore tuna of Fishing Vessel St. Jude
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Terrapin Ridge Wasabi Lime Mustard (or substitute your favorite mustard)
  • 1/4 cup Coarsely chopped water chestnuts
  • 1 Tbsp. cracked Black Pepper (or to taste)

Flake albacore into a medium to large bowl. Mix in mayo, water chestnuts, mustard and pepper. until ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. Serve with rice crackers, or roll in rice paper to form spring rolls and slice into serving sizes.

Stop by your Ballard Farmers Market this Sunday before the big game and pick up tuna and eggs to make this dish. Heck, you can even get mustard seeds from Nash’s Organic Produce and make your own mustard for this dish in time for the Big Game. Go Hawks!
