Trout stuffed with herbed buckwheat dressing

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 30 minutes

4 trout fillets (4 ounces each), cleaned and boned
1 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup kasha
Nonstick cooking spray
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup finely chopped scallions
1/3 cup finely chopped celery
1/3 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 hard boiled egg, peeled and diced
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
Zero-calorie butter spray
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Rinse trout fillets and set aside. Add chicken broth to small saucepan. Cover and bring to boil. Add kasha, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 10 minutes until kasha is tender and liquid is absorbed (check halfway through cooking to make sure kasha is not burning or sticking). Meanwhile, spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and add garlic, scallions, celery, mushrooms, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Sauté until vegetables are tender. Pour vegetables into a mixing bowl and stir in cooked kasha. Add diced hard-boiled egg and sour cream, stirring until well blended. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1/4 of the stuffing mix (heaping 1/2 cup for each serving) in the center of each trout fillet and roll each one into a large bundle. Place with seam side down into casserole dish. Spray the tops of the trout fillets in casserole dish with zero-calorie butter spray, then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and chopped fresh parsley. Place casserole dish uncovered in oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes until trout is cooked and stuffing is heated through.
