  • 4 hardboiled eggs
  • 4 tsp granulated white sugar
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Red Boat Fish Sauce
  • 200ml or 3/4 cup warm water
  • 10 grams garlic, minced
  • 5 grams ginger, matchsticks
  • 20 grams shallot, thinly sliced
  • 25 grams green onions, chopped
  • 2 birds eye chili, sliced


1. Boil the eggs to your preference. Jammy soft boiled recommend: 7 minutes for cold eggs from the fridge or 6 minutes for room temperature eggs.

2. While the eggs cook, prepare a bowl of ice water.

3. Transfer eggs to the bowl of ice water immediately. Let sit to cool for easy peeling.

4.  Add the fish sauce, sugar, vinegar, and water into a container. For 4 eggs, a 950ml/1qt glass container is the perfect size.

5. Stir until sugar has fully dissolved.

6. Add in the garlic, shallot, ginger, green onion, and chili.

7. Peel the eggs and add them to the marinade container.

TIP: If your eggs are not fully submerged, you can add a small piece of clean paper towel on top. The paper towel will soak up the liquid, allowing the top of the eggs to also be exposed to the marinade.

8. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for 24-48 hours.

Serve with warm freshly cooked rice.
