Salmon Stuffed Red Potatoes

From Taste of Home, but the recipe originally called for trout. I had salmon on hand, so that's what I used. If you decide to use trout, please let me know!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cooked potatoes in half, cut bottoms lightly to make them level. Scoop out pulp with a melon-baller, leaving a thick shell in each.
  2. In medium bowl, mash pulp. Stir in mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, dill weed, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Fold in salmon.
  3. Pipe this mixture into potato shells, or use a small spoon. Garnish with dill sprigs.
  4. May reheat in slow oven if desired.

YUM! :) I made these with canned pink salmon, low-fat mayonnaise and low-fat sour cream. I omitted the hot sauce and added 4 cloves of minced garlic and a handful of chopped walnuts (personal taste preferences). Loved the green onions, dill and lemon juice in these: they were deliciously creamy and very flavoursome and re-heat well in the microwave so they were great for take-to-work lunches. Certainly a recipe I'll be making again. Thank you so much for sharing it, Kizzikate! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

I made this using canned salmon which worked out very well, would never have thought to stuff taters with salmon but it was delicious, we enjoyed this, thanks Kizzi!...Kitten:)
