Fish Quesadillas

Growing up in Sydney, Australia we didn’t have too much choice about which restaurants to eat at. Of course we had a few falafel joints, Australian cuisine (which is meat pies), and even a traditional fish and chips shop. No pizza shops, can you imagine!!!! So if you wanted Chinese you made your own. If you wanted Mexican you made your own. I love international cuisine Mexican is my favorite. Fish is always a challenge especially getting the children to eat it. This recipe does that. It takes the fun of eating Mexican food and making it a bit healthier.

NOTE: If you want to use Pam instead of butter you can do the switch easily. 

Fish Quesadillas

1 pkg flour or corn tortilla

1 jar salsa (your favorite brand)

1 pkg shredded mozzarella cheese

2 pounds flounder

Cumin powder (to taste)

Garlic powder (to taste)





Season flounder with garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper, 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. Once it’s cooked set aside.

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.
