Enjoy this tasty recipe for shrimp stuffed tomatoes.
These easy-to-make stuffed tomatoes are a succulent summertime appetizer.
- 4 eggs
- 1 pound 2 ounces tomatoes
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1-1/4 pounds shrimp, cooked and shelled, with tails removed
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek-style yogurt
1 Place the eggs in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook the eggs for 10 minutes.
2 Remove the eggs from the hot water and help them to cool by running cold water over them. Remove the shells.
3 Cut 2 of the eggs into quarters and set aside. Remove the yolks from the remaining 2 eggs and set them aside in a separate bowl, discarding the whites.
4 Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop out their insides. Discard the seeds, sprinkle the hollowed-out tomatoes with salt to taste, and place on a plate to drain.
5 In a food processor combine the shrimp and the 2 quartered hard-boiled eggs. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped.
6 Stuff the tomatoes with the shrimp mixture.
7 Crush the 2 remaining yolks with the back of a fork and combine with the mustard, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix in the yogurt and stir until thoroughly combined.
8 When ready to serve, top the stuffed tomatoes with the yogurt sauce.
Makes 2 servings.
