Cherry tomatoes… even more christmas cooking!
After all the recipes that we tried previously we wanted to do a few extra as not all the dishes were satisfactory and you want to have enough choice when you’re doing a buffet right? So I had been leaving through de “Allerhande Christmas edition”, when I saw some good looking little cherry tomatoes that would serve perfectly as a snack.
This time we prepared the little things in the studio so I could actually take a photo of it. Well, I could have taken a photo at home but my tripod was in the studio… 🙂 That was really the only thing I needed.
The cherry tomatoes are filled with shrimpcocktail and taste absolutely delicious so this is definitely going to be on the menu for christmas. The only thing I found annoying and am not sure how to solve it is that once you empty the tomatoes of their insides they also become a bit wrinkled on the outside. That doesn’t look very fresh, but I am not sure how to solve it. So if anyone has an idea on this, I would be interested to know!
Stuffed cherry tomatoes
- 12 cherrytomatoes
- 2 tablespoons of mayonaise
- 1 teaspoon sherry
- 1 knifepoint tarragon
- 2 tbsp of fresh parsley finely chopped
- 100 gr shrimps
- Cut the top of the cherry tomatoe and remove the insides with a teaspoon. Put away in the fridge untill you need them.
- Mix the mayonaise, sherry, dragon and parsley together and add salt and fresh pepper to taste.
- Carefully mix the shrimps through the mixture. Put the mixture into the tomatoes and sprinkle with some extra parsley.
- So, again; very quick and tasty recipe but the skin is a bit of a problem. If you put the filling in too soon before serving it starts to run down a bit, so best to add the filling ad the last moment to keep it looking fresh!
