“Long an Easter tradition, stuffed hard-cooked eggs -- served on crisp leafy greens -- make the perfect springtime appetizer. Heaped high with a shrimp-yolk filling, they’re rich in protein and zesty in flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and cut the eggs in half lengthwise; remove the yolks. Set whites aside, carefully keeping them intact.
  2. Mash yolks in a small bowl with a fork. Add shrimp, yogurt, olives, chives, thyme, dry mustard and black pepper; blend well. Place the egg white halves on a plate lined with leaf lettuce, if desired.
  3. Mound each egg white half with the shrimp-yolk mixture. Garnish with thyme or chives, if desired.
  4. *To hard cook eggs: Cover eggs with cold water in a saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Lower heat; simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Plunge eggs into cold water to stop cooking and to keep yolks from discoloring.
  5. **Tip: If you prefer, use fat-free mayonnaise, or use half fat-free plain yogurt and half mayonnaise.
