To prepare the tomatoes: Cut in half

To prepare the shrimp: With the shrimp remove the head and peel and remove the legs, shell and vein. Then put the shrimp into a pot of boiling water until it turns orange. Use a colander to scoop the shrimp from the hot water into a bowl of ice and water. Soak the shrimp in cool water for about 2 minutes or until the heat is gone.
