Cajun-Stuffed Potatoes

    This was super delicious! My husband, who usually does not comment about recipes, asked me to put this dish on my regular rotation. The only change I made was using shrimp instead of crawfish, because we couldn't find crawfish. I think this would also make a delicious vegetarian meal, without the shellfish.

    This was AWESOME! I also used shrimp as it was a week early for crawfish availability. I added a few tweaks of my own: I added lemon juice, whole grain mustard, and white wine vinegar to give a little more twang. I tossed the filling of 1/2 of one potato and added in a small can of creamed corn to give another layer of flavor and creaminess to the potatoes. Overall great meal- really delicious!

    Made it with shrimp also--even though I'm pretty picky about not using frozen pre-cooked shrimp, this shortcut saved a lot of effort and was just fine for this recipe. Delicious flavor. Trader Joe's yukon gold potatoes were too small, but I bought them anyhow, so it added quite a bit of effort scooping the flesh out of twice as many spuds. Either way it was worth it and I'll definitely make it again. I'll seek out the right size potatoes somewhere else or try russets next time. Adding corn is a good idea Amber, I'll give that a shot next time! I thought of bacon, but I really don't think this needs it.

    We found this to be a bit bland for our tastes. If I made it again I'd add lots more spices. Subbed crab for crawfish because I couldn't get my hands on any of the latter...
