Salmon Quesedillas

Salmon Quesedillas

lemon juice
green onion
coconut oil
grated cheese

Combine cooked salmon- either two cans of salmon or the equivalent amount of fresh or frozen cooked salmon- with lemon juice (about two tablespoons), minced garlic (about two tablespoons, but there could always be more garlic), a couple of tablespoons of basil, and some diced green onion (about 1/4 cup).

Fry this mixture or heat it up in the microwave.

Then put buttered tortillas on a hot griddle. Sprinkle some grated cheese (cheddar, jack, or…?) over one half of the tortilla, top that half with some salmon mixture, sprinkle more cheese over that, and fold the bare tortilla half over that. When the cheese begins to melt, flip the tortilla and grill the other side. Top with salsa and sour cream if you have it. We’ve eaten these tent camping before. They cook up very nicely on a grill over a fire, or wrapped in foil and laid upon the coals.

To have them as an appetizer, cut the fried quesedilla into thin triangles or strips. Top with a dollop of pumpkin seed salsa for a really special treat.

    I had leftover salmon and wanted to use it but don’t really like cold salmon. I tried this and liked it a lot. It was so easy to put together and was good enough to serve for a main meal with guests.
