Easy Fish Quesadilla

I recently went out to eat at a new fast food restaurant that specializes in fish, called The Fish Plate.   They are on 140 Cedarhurst Avenue, Cedarhurst  and  they make delicious fish and chips, fish tacos, fish chowder, salads, wraps and fresh grilled fish too.

On a night I want to make fish for my kids, I  make this dinner inspired by my new favorite fish restaurant The Fish Plate.

Fish Quesadillas


1 pkg flour or corn tortilla

1 jar salsa (your favorite brand)

1 pkg shredded mozzarella cheese

2 pounds flounder

Cumin powder

Garlic powder





Season flounder with garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper, (to taste) and sear on a well oiled grill pan for a few minutes on each side until cooked through. Fish may break apart but that is okay.

On one tortilla, spread salsa to cover the whole surface.  Take a handful of cheese and spread over the salsa. Place fish over the cheese then cover with another plain tortilla making a sandwich.

On medium heat, melt some butter on a 9 inch sauté pan.

Once butter has melted place tortilla on it and cook for a few minutes on each side and the cheese has melted and the outside is slightly brown.

Slice into wedges like a pizza.  Serve with guacamole, sour cream or salsa.

My favorite Mexican guacamole



3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed

1 lime, juiced

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup diced onion

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)



In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately
