Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Prick the potatoes on one side with a fork, then bake until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly, and then slice each potato in half.

Heat the olive oil in a pan on low heat and saute the shrimp, spinach, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook until the spinach is wilted and the shrimp is pink. Remove from the heat and set aside. Gently scoop out the potato and place in a bowl. Mix together the potatoes, sour cream, half of the Monterey Jack cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper by hand. Fold in the shrimp and spinach. Gently stuff the mixture back into the potato shells, making sure not to break them. Sprinkle each potato with the remaining cheese. Bake until browned on top, about 20 minutes.

    So easy! Very sweet and filling! Perfect side to go with a steak! Potato skins can be fragile handle gingerly! So much shrimp in each serving.....Will try Cajun seasoning next time and of course a bit of bacon on top! So yummy!

    Fantastic, easy recipe! Notes: be sure to lay down foil on the bottom of your oven prior to baking because those sweet potatoes - if/when they leak - make a sticky mess! My baked sweet potato skins also (as noted in a review below) did not hold up during the scraping process, so for the second bake, I made foil boats to hold each one inside a larger, foil-lined pan. I added several shots of Cholula hot sauce to the mash and it really added a nice kick. I think I'll add an extra handful or two of fresh spinach next time. And trust me, there's going to be a next time very soon!

    Ever since I saw Bobby make these, I have wanted to try them. My 15 y.o. refuses to eat sweet potatoes, so I found some yellow-flesh organic sweet potatoes at Whole Foods, and then told her we're having shrimp stuffed potatoes with sour cream and cheese. She hasn't tasted them yet, but she said "yum" when I told her, so I think she's in! I did taste the filling as I was filling the potatoes. OMG! So good!
