- 1/2 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
- 4 large tortillas
- Extra oil, for brushing
- Sour cream, for serving (optional)
- Guacamole, for serving (optional)
- Salsa, for serving (optional)
After the shrimp is done marinating, add 1 tbsp. of oil to a skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Mix all the cheeses in a bowl and set aside.
Lightly spread one side of each tortilla with vegetable oil. Place one tortilla, oil side down, in a separate skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle on half of the cheese mixture and half of the shrimp mixture. Top with another tortilla, oil side up.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown and cheese begins to melt. Flip quesadilla by placing a dish on top, flipping it onto the plate, and then sliding it back into the skillet. Cook the other side of the quesadilla for an additional 2-3 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Note: You can cover the skillet with a lid in order to speed up the melting process.
Repeat with remaining two tortillas, shrimp mixture and cheeses.
Serve immediately with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.
