READY IN: 45mins




  • Place shrimp in a bowl.
  • Add lime or lemon juice, chiles, green onion, cilantro.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Let Marinade for 10-30 minutes.
  • Strain out the juice.
  • Heat a cast iron or stick-free skillet on medium high.
  • Add 1/2 tsp of oil amd spread it around the pan.
  • Place 1 tortilla on the skillet.
  • Flip it over a few times, 10 seconds between flips so that air pockets form.
  • Do this with the second tortilla also. Leave the 2nd tortilla in the pan.
  • Sprinkle the tortilla with the grated cheese.
  • Distribute the shrimp mixture on top of the cheese.
  • Place the other tortilla on top.
  • Use 2 spatulas(one on top and one on bottom) to flip the quesadilla over when the bottom tortilla is nicely toasted and the cheese has begun to melt.
  • Remove the quesadilla from the pan when the now bottom tortilla has toasted sufficiently.
  • Cut like a pie into six pieces.
  • Serve with avocado slices and sour cream. Garnish with cilantro.
