Avocado, Shrimp & Caramelized Onion Quesadillas

Appetizer-sized wedges of tortillas filled with aromatic seasoned shrimp, avocado, melted Monterey jack cheese and caramelized onions make an irresistible finger food at parties.


Recipe Details

  1. Toss shrimp with the cumin, coriander, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; add the shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes per side or until just opaque. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to skillet and add onions, oregano, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden, about 15-18 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Arrange tortillas on a work surface. Sprinkle the bottom half of each with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Top the cheese with 1/4 of the onions, 1/4 of the avocado, 1/4 of the cilantro, and 1/4 of the shrimp. Sprinkle the shrimp with the remaining cheese then fold the top half of the tortilla over the filling to form a semi-circle.
  3. Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel and place over medium heat. Add 2 quesadillas and cook until the outside is lightly browned, the cheese has melted and the filling is hot, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board and repeat with remaining quesadillas. Let stand 3 minutes then cut each into 4 wedges. Serve immediately.
