I always see pictures of marinated soft boiled eggs toping bowls of ramen, I don’t see them presented as just a side dish or snack which is how I like them, it’s like the deviled egg of Japan. Soft boiled eggs are peeled and marinated in an assortment of things, miso, soy sauce, mirin, sake, dashi, sugar and then let to sit for a few days in the fridge. Once fully marinated you slice them in half, pop them in your mouth and enjoy as a perfect snack.
Every time I make miso marinated eggs I look up a recipe or try to find my old recipe notes and can’t find exactly what I’m looking for so I end up wing it. They always turn out great but they would be more enjoyable if I had a trusty marinade to ensure they were perfect every time. So finally I did it, I managed to make a few batches to test different marinade ratios and find the one I like the best. But knowing me I’ll only half follow this recipe in the future because that’s the type of person I am, I can’t ever make anything the same.
