Trout-Stuffed Red Potatoes

 Trout-Stuffed Red Potatoes
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."
