Tomatoes Stuffed with Shrimp

Robyn Bruce


This is one of my favorite spring and summer recipes. I love tomatoes and I love shrimp. I've made these on a baking sheet and put the baking sheet on the grill outside for a few minutes until they were done. They get a bit a smoky flavor that's very good.
