Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 15


  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb sauteed peeled shrimp
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • for coating vegetable oil
  • paprika
  • salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Begin by washing potatoes, drying them, and gently pricking them with a fork on the sides. Coat each potato with vegetable oil, place on foil covered pan, and bake for approximately 1 hour.

Place the butter in a large bowl. Remove the potatoes from the oven and slice the top third off of each potato. Gently scoop out the potato and place in the bowl. Using a mixer on high, mix the potatoes, butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. Fold in the shrimp and cheese into the mixture. Gently stuff the mixture back into the potato shells, making sure not to break them. Pile the mixture as high as you can on top of the potato shells. Sprinkle each potato with cheese and paprika for color. Bake in the oven for approximately 20 to 30 minutes until browned on top.
