Trout-Stuffed Red Potatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


2 dozen

Hollowed-out small red potatoes serve as "cups" to hold a creamy trout filling, seasoned with lemon, dill and a dash of hot pepper sauce. "MY husband, who's a chef, prepared these for the State of Colorado Potato Commissioners and they a hit," says Bonnie Gomez of Rio Rancho, New Mexico. "He smokes the trout that we catch, but you can also substitute baked trout or salmon in this recipe."


  • 12 tiny red potatoes (about 1-1/2-inch diameter)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash hot pepper sauce, optional
  • 1 cup flaked smoked trout
  • Fresh dill sprigs


  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Cut potatoes in half horizontally. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each potato to level if necessary. Scoop out the pulp with a melon baller, leaving a thick shell.
  3. In a large bowl, mash the pulp. Stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, dill, lemon juice, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce if desired. Fold in trout. Pipe into potato shells. Garnish with dill sprigs.
