  • Use ripe tomatoes for the best flavor.
  • Make sure that the cooked shrimp is peeled and chopped before adding it to the bowl.

  • Instead of shrimp, use canned tuna for a more affordable option. This substitution will still provide the same flavor and texture, but with a lower cost.
  • Instead of mayonnaise, use greek yogurt for a healthier option. Greek yogurt is a great source of protein and provides a creamier texture than mayonnaise.

Mexican Style Replace the shrimp with black beans and the mayonnaise with salsa. Add a sprinkle of chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder to the mixture. Stuff the tomato with the bean mixture and top with shredded cheese and diced jalapenos. Serve with tortilla chips.
