Smoked Salmon Quesadillas with Honey Sour Cream Dip

Salmon Quesadilla

Hi! Hope you’re having a great week. Over the days, weeks, months, years…..you get the point, I’ve lamented on having to cook dinner after coming home after a long day at work. It was always, “Should I cook something quick and easy?” or cook what I really

want. Well I have a recipe here for something quick and easy. I love quesadilla (who doesn’t with all that cheese!),  but I rarely get a chance to make it seeing that I have thoughts of many of recipes and foods that I want to eat first. Here is a quick and totally easy recipe with just the ingredients that you have in your house.

Serving Size: 6                                                                    Prep Time: ~10 minutes

Cook Time: ~20 minutes                                                  Total Cook Time: ~30 minutes

Quesadilla Ingredients

  • 1 pack of 8″ flour tortillas
  • 6 ounces cheese, grated ( I used Cheddar Cheese with Basil and Tomatoes)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 8 – 10 slices smoked salmon, I used Foppen Norwegian Smoked Salmon Slices (peppered, traditional, and dill flavored)
  • 10 – 12 cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered

Honey Sour Cream Dip Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 – 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cilantro, fresh or dried
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

 

Instructions

  1. Depending on what you are cooking on (I used an electric griddle) preheat your cooking instrument, whether its a griddle or frying pan.
  2. On a flour tortilla, place cheese, onion, salmon, tomatoes, and top with cheese again. (It is best to prepare quesadillas before cooking so that you have time to prepare the dip).
  3. Place the tortilla in the griddle before covering it with another tortilla.
  4. Cover the quesadillas (I used a tempered glass pot lid) so that it can cook evenly.
  5. While the quesadillas are cooking, you can start the dip.20170713_193005
  6. For the Honey Sour Cream dip, place the sour cream, honey, garlic, lemon juice, and cilantro in a small container and mix together thoroughly.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. For the quesadilla, make sure to cook both sides of the quesadilla until browned and cheese has melted on the inside.
  9. Cut as desired (I cut them into fourths) and serve with dip. Enjoy!
