Shrimp and Olive Deviled Eggs
Makes 8 servings
Ingredients: 8 hard-cooked eggs, peeled, halved lengthwise
1/2 cup cooked, peeled and chopped shrimp
3 tablespoons chopped pimento-stuffed olives
2 teaspoons minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
16 thin 1-inch strips roasted red bell pepper or pimento
Directions: 1. Spoon yolks out of eggs. Slice a thin sliver from bottom of each egg white to keep them from rolling.
2. Combine 4 whole egg yolks, shrimp, olives, onions, parsley, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, salt, and oil in a bowl and mash together. Spoon the shrimp mixture into each of the whites.
3. Whisk together the mayonnaise with the remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Top each egg with a dollop of mayonnaise mixture. Grate the remaining yolks over the mayonnaise and lay a strip of red pepper on each egg. Serve eggs and cherry tomatoes on a platter lined with lettuce.
