Grilled Eggs With Vietnamese Seasonings

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 68


4 eggs, large, at room temperature
3 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh
1 tablespoon sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Thai, bird, or serrano chile, thinly sliced (for milder sauce, seed the chile)
1 head lettuce, Boston, separated into leaves, rinsed and spun dry
1 bunch fresh mint, small bunch, trimmed of large stems


1. Preheat the grill to medium.

2. When ready to cook, pierce a tiny hole in the end of each egg with an egg pricker or needle. Place the eggs on the grill and cook until the shell is browned and eggs are completely cooked, 10 to 12 minutes, turning often with tongs to ensure even cooking.

3. Combine the fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, garlic, and chile in a small bowl and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Divide the sauce among 4 tiny bowls. Arrange the lettuce leaves and mint on a platter.

4. Serve the eggs in the shell. To eat, shell the egg and cut it in quarters lengthwise. Each quarter egg should then be wrapped in a lettuce leaf with a sprig of mint, dipped in the sauce, and eaten.

Serves 4 as an appetizer
