In China, some will use Sea duck eggs for their Salted Eggs*. Ideally, for best delicious result, it is preferred to use duck eggs to get the best rich red orange yolk. These duck egg yolks have higher yolk content, fats and cholesterol than regular chicken egg yolks (so they are creamier).
There are many recipe uses for Salted Egg* spread, not just for sandwiches or for filling. You may use this for tossing with fried chicken, fried tofu, as pasta sauce, for fried rice, puto filling, shawarma sauce, burrito, sushi, calamares, dippings, sauces etc. This is so yummy!
