goat cheese + shrimp quesadillas

Whoever said you shouldn't mix seafood with cheese is out of their damn mind. Because these quesadillas were damn near perfect. Ooey and gooey and everything awesome, with a crisp tortilla casing. I was the happiest panda in the land when I ate these.

Happiest. Panda.
Goat cheese and shrimp quesadillas (adapted from here)

2 flour tortillas
handful frozen shrimp, deveined with tails off, thawed
1/2 small onion, diced
1 T olive oil
1/4 cup ricotta cheese (optional)
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
handful of shredded cheese of your choice
avocado, salsa and/or sour cream for serving
Heat your olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add in the diced onion, and cook until fragrant and soft, about 3 minutes. Add in the shrimp, and cook until heated, or about 4 or 5 minutes.

While that's cooking, you can smear your ricotta cheese onto one of your tortillas. This, however, is optional. I only chose to do this because I needed to use up my ricotta before it went bad. Then add on the crumbled goat cheese and the shrimp and onion mixture. Sprinkle on the shredded cheese, then top with the other tortilla. Cook over medium heat in a greased skillet until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are crunchy.
Oh, and don't forget the avocado. Never forget the avocado.

  4. Ok shrimp quesadillas are legit one of my favorite things but GOAT CHEESE and AVOCADO? That sounds uh-mazing and I really wonder where this combo has been my whole life...

  5. These sound amazing. I love shrimp and cheeseeee.

  6. Creative recipe. I love finding foods that work together that people don't normal think of. I just made a grilled cheese with honey and a dash of sea salt the other and it was actually pretty good.
