Shrimp Quesadillas

Shrimp Quesadillas


  • 2 lbs raw, peeled, deveined, tail on X-small Pacific Lush shrimp
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 7 Tbs cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 2 Tbs Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lb Chihuahua or Mozzarella cheese
  • 12 flour or corn tortillas


Thaw shrimp, remove tail, and dry on a paper towel. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, sauté onion, and garlic until fragrant. Add shrimp and green pepper and sauté for three more minutes. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper, and cook with shrimp until color changes to orange. Sprinkle with cilantro and stir all the ingredients. Remove from the heat. In a flat hot pan, warm the tortillas, about one minute per side.  When tortillas are warmed, generously sprinkle cheese and 3 Tbs of cooked shrimp over approximately half of the tortilla, then fold it and let the cheese melt. Turn the quesadilla on each side for an additional two minutes. Quesadillas can be served with guacamole. Enjoy!
