Smoked Salmon & Dill Deviled Eggs: A Recipe Inspired by The Shape of Water

Appetizers | Movie Food | Deviled Eggs | The Geeks have created a new recipe, Smoked Salmon & Dill Deviled Eggs, inspired by Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water. 2geekswhoeat.comOne of our favorite classic horror movies is the Universal classic Creature from the Black Lagoon. When we saw the trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s newest film, The Shape of Water, we were beyond excited! We’ve come up with a great new recipe, Smoked Salmon & Dill Deviled Eggs, for it as well. After reading about our newest dish, be sure to also enter our giveway at the bottom of the post!

The Shape of Water is “an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

When it comes to finding an idea for a recipe we always start with foods found within the film. Lucky for us, The Shape  of Water has a prominent food item, eggs. Despite creating a few other deviled egg recipes in the past, we knew this was the route to go. To tie the recipe to the movie we used not only green from the dill but also incorporated fish.

We hope you love our recipe for Smoked Salmon and Dill Deviled Eggs as much as we do! Now for the part you’ve been waiting for! We are giving away five pairs of screening passes for an advanced showing of The Shape of Water! The showing will be held at Harkins Tempe Marketplace on Wednesday, December 6th. The screening starts at 7 pm and the winners should arrive at 6:15 in order to guarantee their seating. Winners will be selected on Tuesday, December 5th. Good luck! The Shape of Water Poster

Smoked Salmon & Dill Deviled Eggs: A Recipe Inspired by The Shape of Water

Yield: 24 deviled egg halfs

Serving Size: 1 deviled egg half


  • 12 Eggs, hard boiled
  • 1/4 cup Full Fat Mayo (we prefer Best Foods/Hellman's)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill
  • 2-4 oz Smoked Salmon cut into small squares
  • Dill to garnish


  • Cut eggs in half, separating the yolks from the whites.
  • In a bowl, combine egg yolks, mayo, mustard, and dill.
  • Once combined, place egg yolk mixture into a piping bag.
  • Pipe yolk into reserved egg whites.
  • Top with smoked salmon and dill (if desired).
  • Serve.


It is best to hard boil your eggs 1-2 days in advance and refrigerate them. This will make them easier to peel.
