While we still splurge, I try to be more aware and choose healthy Lenten meals like my seafood stuffed tomatoes. Before my focus on finding healthier meals, my favorite meal for Lent was takeout cheese pizza. I know. Definitely not one of the healthy Lenten meals I should have chosen. This year, I have more of a focus on finding healthy meals than I have in the past. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Healthy Lenten Meals – Seafood-Stuffed Tomatoes

These seafood stuffed tomatoes can be created a few different ways. For the seafood part, you can use lobster, shrimp, crab, imitation crab, tuna or albacore. It all depends on your budget and your family’s preferences. While I absolutely love lobster and crab, our grocery budget doesn’t allow us to splurge very often on that. I used sustainably caught albacore from a can when I made this and it’s absolutely delicious.

What you’ll need to make these seafood stuffed tomatoes:

Cutting board with juice groove – You need to core and remove the center of your tomatoes so you can stuff them. That will make a mess but you can catch all of the juice with a cutting board with a juice groove.

If you worry that this won’t be a meal for your family, you can always add a tossed salad and some crusty, homemade bread. Or, you could serve it for lunch instead. Generally, one of these seafood stuffed tomatoes fills me up for lunch.

While this makes a great idea for Lent, it also works well during the height of summer when you have too many tomatoes from the garden. It’s also gluten-free so it’s something that the whole family can enjoy.
