STUFFED TOMATO BITES (by France)
When I cook, I'm all about bright colors... and this recipe is fresh, bright and delicious! It's the perfect appetizer idea for any dinner party or a nibble idea to keep in your fridge for a quick & healthy snack during the week. Bon appetit!
Serves 4 l Difficulty level: Easy l Prep time: 20min l Total time: 26min
3.5oz salmon roe (100g)
8 cherry tomatoes (large, round ones)
2 limes, juice and zest
10 dill pieces
8 tablespoons Israeli couscous
Olive oil, salt & pepper
1. Wash and dry tomatoes. Cut their top off and carve their interior out. I used to a melon baller such as this one to make the carving cleaner. Set the tomato pulp to the side, in a small bowl.
2. Following directions on the pack, cook the couscous. Boil water and cook for 6 minutes. Then drain couscous and drizzle it with olive oil.
3. In a bowl, mix the tomato pulp with the lime juice and zest, thinly-chopped dill, couscous, salmon roe and salt & pepper.
4. Stuff each tomato with a spoon full of couscous stuffing. Decorate with a dill strand.
