Tomates Crevettes / Tomaten met Grijze Garnaaltjes

This is a very typical belgian starter/appetizer that you should try if you have a chance to visit Belgium. Or you can prepare it at home, and I will show you how. This dish "tomatoes with grey shrimps and mayonnaise" is very refreshing and absolutely delicious. It is very easy to prepare, and there is no cooking involved, just cut a hole in the tomatoes and fill them with grey shrimps and mayo, as simple as that.

When hubby saw me preparing this dish, he said, oh you have not prepared this for a very long time. I said, yes indeed, it's a long time since we had this. 

Since it was still snowing and freezing cold despite being the start of spring, I almost didn't feel like making this dish since we normally eat this cold during the hot summer season. But I really needed something quick and easy to serve as dinner, as the 2 kids were chasing each other in the living room, my almost-4-year-old boy was chasing my 1 year old baby girl round the dining table and you could hear them giggling away. 

So, here is the recipe for Tomates Crevettes / Tomaten met Grijze Garnaaltjes. Enjoy!

I am submitting this dish to the Little Thumbs Up event (March: Tomatoes) organized by Mui Mui of my little favorite DIY at this link and Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids.

    1. Hi Mui Mui,
      It's my pleasure joining Little Thumbs Up, I am just recycling my old recipes :-)

  2. Hi Bee,

    I have never heard of this dish before. Nice to know and learn this lovely tomato appetizer dish from you.


    1. Hi Zoe,
      This is very easy and delicious. But I am not sure whether you can get the north sea grey shrimps in Australia.
