Preparation

Prick each potato several times; microwave on high, turning halfway through, until tender, about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, combine tuna, red pepper, olives, mayonnaise, sour cream, celery, onion, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper; set aside.

Cut X in top of each potato; squeeze to open and separate. Mound tuna mixture onto potatoes.

Place potatoes on rimmed baking sheet; broil 6 inches (15 cm) from heat until heated through and edges are crisp and darkened, about 5 minutes.
