4 servings

Serving size:
1 stuffed trout fillet

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.
