Salmon Quesadillas

We were in the mood for Mexican this past Friday but with it being meatless I needed to come up with a fish quesadilla. I had some salmon to use up as well so salmon quesadillas were it. I found several recipes online and came up with this recipe.

Apparently I deleted the picture off my computer before I put it in this post! Sorry!


1 yellow pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1-2 cups spinach
1 tbsp minced garlic
sea salt and gr pepper
1-2 salmon filets grilled and shredded
1/2-1 cup mozzarella cheese, sharp cheddar, or goat cheese-We prefer goat cheese
2 10 inch ww tortillas
evoo or butter for tortillas
greek plain yogurt or sour cream to top

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook salmon as preferred and shred.
Heat pan with a bit of evoo or butter. Once warm add garlic, onion and pepper and saute until soft. Once vegetables are softened, add spinach, cover pan and let the spinach wilt about 1-2 minutes. Add in shredded salmon and warm.
Butter or oil one side of the tortilla, lay flat on baking sheet and top with salmon mixture to one half. Top with a bit of cheese. Fold over. Repeat with 2nd tortilla. Bake in oven for 5-8 mins per side or until golden brown on each side.
Remove from oven and let rest 1-2 minutes. Cut and top with greek yogurt or sour cream. Serve immediately!

  1. I really like your recipe, especially because you use goat cheese, grilled salmon and Greek yogurt. These are really great ingredients that give the quesadillas a fresh taste that is very appetizing. Salmon quesadillas are a great alternative to chicken or beef quesadillas. Very nice idea, thank you your post.
