Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

This is an easy, elegant thing to bring to a potluck or brunch. It also makes a cool picnic appetizer or something to bring to a backyard BBQ -- but since it can be eaten in one bite with one hand, these eggs are ideal for cocktail parties, too. Or you can just make some, turn on the football game and eat them all yourself. That's what I do. I used hot-smoked salmon for this, but you can make it with cold-smoked salmon, too. Salmon caviar is available in many supermarkets near the canned fish, or you can buy high-quality salmon caviar online.
