Pop out the yolks and place them in a medium bowl. Reserve the whites. Add mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice to the yolks and stir with a fork or whisk until ti gets very smooth. Season with salt and more lemon juice, if desired.

Fit a pastry bag with a large star tip or use a resealable plastic bag with a hole cut out in the corner. Scoop the egg yolk mixture into the pastry bag and pipe into the egg whites. Top with shallot gremolata and then serve.
