Stuffed Jacket Potatoes

With Salmon and Hollandaise Sauce

I created this one night when I looked in my fridge and thought what can I cook for tea tonight! On this occasion I had some salmon, chives and a pack of hollandaise sauce in fridge and some potatoes that needed using up. So this is what I came up with, Simple and easy to make which can be made in advance and just pop in oven when ready.


4 large potatoes

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt & freshly ground black pepper

125g (1/2 cup) sour cream

150g cooked salmon, sliced, finely chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

25g (1/4 cup) coarsely grated tasty cheddar, plus extra for topping 

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh dill


Step 1

Pierce potatoes 5-6 times all over with a fork. Rub oil over the potato skins to evenly coat. Season with salt. Cover the microwave turntable with paper towel. Place the potatoes around the edge of the turntable. Cook on High/800watts/100%, turning potatoes halfway through cooking, for 10-12 minutes or until tender.

Step 2

Wrap in foil and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. When cool enough Carefully scoop out the potatoes and Place in a bowl.

Step 3

Add the sour cream to the potato and mash with a fork until well combined. Stir in the salmon, 5 teaspoons of the chives, the lemon juice, cheese and dill. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon potato mixture back into shells. Sprinkle with the remaining chives and extra cheese

Step 4

Bake in oven at medium heat until golden brown. Serve with hollandaise sauce (optional ) salad or veg.
