Eggs boil hard to make the yolk friable,but not digested, otherwise it will have a blue color. Cooled and peeled eggs are divided into protein and yolk separately. We rub it on the grater and set it aside. Hard cheese is also rubbed on a large grater in a separate bowl.
Next, in another bowl, lay the fish out of the jar and knead it well with a fork.
Separately, cut finely onion (the smaller, the better).
And now we start to lay this all on a dish in the form of a hill. Lay out the salad layers in a certain order, without stirring:
the first layer - the grated egg whites, which we neatly lay out on a platter in the form of a circle;
the second layer - grated cheese (also laid out evenly on the boundaries);
