This recipe is inspired by a serving I tried at the cafe of San Marcos, TX Prime Outlets. I couldn't recall what it was called but when there are too much potatoes at home, this recipe works to clear our stock. OK, let me named it - Baked Potato Pouch! The preparation is not tedious, and if one prefers less carbohydrate, just pick a smaller potato.
Why I named it 'Pouch', it has to be like an envelope, right? Containing the filling from protein/fibers, that depends on what you would love to have too. Typically, it can be BBQ minced pork or BBQ-Honey Salmon. For this attempt, I picked BBQ Salmon. This can be alternated with minced chicken or beef as well. This dish would also work well if there is some left-over stewed lamb which at times we do not know what to do with it.
Ready to check out how I do it?
Ingredients (makes 3 to 4 servings)
4 small potatoes - thoroughly washed, pat dried
3-4 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp sour cream
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup green onions - chopped
2 can (12 oz) pink salmon
2 tbsp honey BBQ sauce
1/2 tsp butter/margarine
dash of salt and pepper
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Using a fork, poke 8 deep holes all over the spud to allow moisture to escape during baking.
3. Place potatoes on the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 1 hour or until the skin feels crips and flesh feels soft.
4. To prepare the filling: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and saute for 5 to 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked.
5. Once the potato is baked, create a dotted line at the center. Squeeze one end to another to crack the spud open.
6. Spread potato flesh with butter, sour cream and sprinkle with grated cheese.
6. Top with BBQ salmon and garnish with green onions.
7. Serve hot.
