mexican shrimp quesadilla

Quick and yummy dinner or snack ..amen!  The ingredients are all fresh and it’s a killer combination.
This was literally 20 minutess, start to finish.

This can also be made into tacos / wraps (pictured below) – whatever floats your boat.


  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • 16 large shrimp, deshelled & deveined
  • Garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste 
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas


In a medium bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients and set aside.

Season the shrimp with the garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Drizzle a grill pan or spray with olive oil. Add shrimp and scallions and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, on medium heat, or until cooked through. Remove from heat and chop em up.
Heat the tortilla on medium heat until warm on both sides, flipping once. Lower heat to medium low and add the cheese and allow to melt. Add the shrimp pieces and some of the salsa. Top with another heated/warmed tortilla (I just used another separate pan to heat the second tortilla). Cut like a pizza and serve.

Add some sriracha or hot sauce if you like things HOT!
Yields 4 servings.

…delicious happens
