Easy Weeknight Meal: Shrimp Quesadilla with Tropical Salsa

As you know by now I hate Mondays and I’m all about making my life easy on this dreaded day.  This is why I like quick and easy dinner options! Since Friday was the first day of summer today I’m using some of those fresh fruits from the Farmers Market to make a Shrimp Quesadilla with Tropical Salsa. This recipe is so easy that it takes less than 15 minutes to make and fits perfectly into the summer theme!  Dinner will be a breeze tonight and your family will think you’re AweMazing!

Shrimp Quesadilla

1 Lbs. peeled and deveined shrimp

Southwest Seasoning (I use Chef Paul’s Magic Southwest Fajita Seasoning)

1 Tsp. Olive Oil



1 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese

  1. Rinse shrimp with cold water and squeeze lime juice over shrimp.  Sprinkle with seasoning and cover well.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat; add shrimp. Sautee 2 minutes or until shrimp reach desired doneness; remove from pan. Wipe pan with a paper towel
  3. Lightly butter one side of tortillas. Arrange shrimp on the non-buttered side of the tortilla and sprinkle with 1/3 C of cheese.
  4. Return pan to heat and place quesadilla in pan; cook 2 minute on each side or until browned.
  5. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with Tropical Salsa. Yield: 4 Servings

Tropical Salsa

1 Mango peeled and diced

2 Kiwis peeled and diced

1 Avocado cored and diced

1 Tomato diced

Cilantro (I use a handful)

2 TBS Lime

1 Tsp. Olive Oil

  1. Combine ingredients in a medium bowl and toss well.

              Option: Blend salsa in a food processor for thinner salsa.

Serve with a side of Black Beans for a complete meal that will be AweMazing!
