Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 12 hard-boiled large eggs

- 4-5 Tbsp tomato sauce
- salt and pepper to taste

This deviled egg with shrimp recipe makes 9-12 appetizer servings.
Before cooking the shrimp, rinse thoroughly and put into a small saucepan. Cover with water. Boil for about 5 minutes. Immediately remove from the stove and pour out the water. Place shrimp in a bowl of cold water to cool the shrimp quickly. Peel and refrigerate.
Hard-boil the eggs and cool them. Peel and cut the eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks. Place yolks in a small mixing bowl. Mash with a fork so they are crumbly.
Finely chop the olives and the cooked shrimp and put into a mixing bowl. Add a few tablespoons of tomato sauce and mix. Add mayonnaise and half of the crumbled egg yolks to the mixture gradually, being careful not to add too much. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Scoop the mixture into each egg half and place on a platter to serve. Carefully dust the eggs with Spanish paprika and a bit of crumbled egg yolk. Serve!
