<Yield> 4 servings

<Cook time> 10 minutes


4 eggs

1 tablespoon vinegar

Marinating Liquid

100ml fish stock base

50ml water

1 teaspoon grated ginger


1. Boil just enough water to cover all the eggs in a pot. Let the eggs come to room temperature. Make a crack on the bottom of the thicker part of the egg. This will help to peel the shell later on.

2. Add the vinegar into the water. Vinegar helps to harden the egg whites. When the water comes to a boil, lower the heat to low. Place the eggs gently into the water then bring it to a boil again. During the First minute keep making a swirl to keep the egg yolk centered. Continue to boil for another 5 minutes. The total cooking time will be 6 minutes.

3. Make the marinating liquid, this one is soy sauce based. We use a dashi soy sauce also known as a tempura dipping sauce. Mix together 100ml of 3 times concentrated dashi soy sauce, 50 ml of water and one tsp of grated ginger in a plastic bag.

4. Transfer the cooked eggs into an ice bath and leave it for 5 minutes. Start peeling the shell from the thicker part since there is an air pocket. Running it under tap water will also help to peel the shell smoothly.

5. Place the eggs in the soy sauce mixture and seal it completely. Soak it for at least 6 hours in a fridge. Now it's ready to serve.


Egg yolks will get denser and thicker as time goes on.

<Storage time>

Store them in a air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
