Don’t let the number of ingredients in this seafood double baked potatoes dish scare you off – it’s easier than it looks. I’ve paired it here with pork chops, but any meat will do nicely. You’ll notice that I’ve done the pork chops to medium wellness here.
Thanks to advances in technology, Trichinosis has been eliminated in our food supply, which means you can eat pork rarely if you want to.

Instructions for Seafood double baked potatoes
Stab the potatoes with a fork a couple of times, wrap them in aluminum foil and bake. If you’ve got nice big genetically modified potatoes like mine, they will need about 50 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees.
While the potatoes are cooking, sautee the seafood in a pan. You’ll want to undercook the ingredients as they’ll finish off in the oven. Crabmeat also works quite nicely in this dish.

Take the potatoes out of the oven and scoop out the middle. You’ll want to keep about 1/2″ of potato meat around the skin so that they hold their shape. Mash the potato meat with some butter and cream. If you’re a stickler about being healthy, you can use chicken stock instead to add flavor and moisture.
Once you have a light mash, mix in the grated cheese, the chopped green onions, and the seafood. Scoop back into the potato skins and throw them into the oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
While the potatoes are baking, heat some oil up in a pan over medium heat. Sear one side until brown, flip over and put into the oven with the potatoes. You’ll want to cook the pork chops to medium wellness. For a 1″ thick pork chop, this will take about 7 minutes at 400 degrees.
Allow the meat to rest for about 1-2 minutes and serve!
