Shrimp-Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe

Healthy appetizers from Pierre Dukan diet.


4 eggs
1 lb. 2 oz. tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-1/4 lb. shrimp, cooked and shelled, with tails removed
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek-style yogurt


Step 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.

Step 2: Remove the eggs from the hot water and help them to cool by running cold water over them. Remove the shells.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 5: In a food processor combine the shrimp and the 2 quartered hard-boiled eggs. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped.

Step 6: Stuff the tomatoes with the shrimp mixture.

Step 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.

Step 8: When ready to serve, top the stuffed tomatoes with the yogurt sauce.
