Stuffed tomatoes are a classic tapas recipe and usually served the same ways as stuffed pequillo peppers, cod and prawns being the favourite with the latter. Cold stuffed tomatoes work equally well so using ready cooked prawns and a simple mayonnaise you can both create a delicious starter and make the tapas table a little brighter. A very simple combination stuffed with heaps of Mediterranean flavour! Enjoy.
