Simple soft boiled eggs infused with the umami flavours of a soy sauce marinade. Prep these beauties in less than 20 minutes before transferring to the fridge for a few hours to let the magic happen.

Serves 4.  Use the scaling buttons below to double or triple the quantity.


  • 4 eggs
  • 350ml (or 1.5 cups) water
  • 225ml / (or 1 cup soy sauce)
  • 30ml / (or 2 tablespoons cup mirin) 
  • 20g / (or 1.5 tablespoons ginger)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic


  1. Pierce a small hole in the bottom of each egg with a pin or similar sharp pointed object
  2. Place the eggs in a saucepan of boiling water for 6 minutes (note 1)
  3. Put the eggs into a sieve or colander when they're cooked and place under cold running water for 1 minute
  4. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of cold water for at least 20 minutes
  5. Meanwhile add the marinade ingredients to a suitable container or bowl (note 2)
  6. Once the eggs have cooled, gently peel them (note 3)
  7. Add the eggs to the marinade and refrigerate for 6 - 12 hours (note 4)


  1. Ensure there is enough water to cover the eggs
  2. Use a container or bowl that holds the eggs with the marinade fully covering them
  3. Gently tap the bottom of eggs against the counter to break the shell and start peeling from the bottom
  4. Avoid marinading the eggs for more than 12 hours - they'll be too salty after this point
