  1. In a small bowl, add Icelandic Provisions plain skyr, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, turmeric, paprika, and sea salt. Whisk together until emulsified. Set aside.
  2. Break 1 egg into a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. tip the strainer around to help separate the thins parts of the egg white from the thick part of the egg white.

Pour the egg into a ramekin and set aside. Toss the thinner egg white from the bowl. Repeat with each egg.

  6. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs. Place them on a clean plate and set aside.
