When we were in Cancun, Mexico a few years ago I had the most amazing Shrimp Quesadillas. They were so good, that I have been craving them ever since:) My boys and I love to make them for a quick and wonderful dinner. They are simple and easy but oh so good! Once again this is hardly a recipe..so simple…my kind of cooking in the summer! Make one or many–just increase your ingredients to your liking. These are best served with fresh guacamole.
I am back to posting my weekly Menus here.
Spicy Shrimp Quesadillas
submitted by Melanie ~ www.thesisterscafe.com
Uncooked shelled and deviened shrimp
crushed red pepper
salt and pepper
grated cheese of choice (we like the mexican blend)
Pull the tail shell of the shrimp and put in a bowl. Sprinkle on crushed red pepper flakes, a crushed garlic clove, and salt and pepper. Stir and let sit while your pan heats up. Saute the shrimp until light pink (around 5-10 minutes depending on size). Once cooked set aside.
Heat a large griddle or pan. Lightly butter your tortillas and lay it down in the hot pan. Sprinkle with grated cheese and 5-6 shrimp. Sprinkle with more cheese and another lightly buttered tortilla. Cook for a few minutes until golden brown and then turn and do the same for the other side. Enjoy with salsa and guacamole!
