So here is one of the recipes from“My scary list”. They say that quesadillas are just so easy to make, especially when you have tortillas and cheese in the fridge. So I gave it a go and hoped for the best. It went actually very smooth and they were very good. 9 more to go.Shrimp and cheese quesadillas
- 500 g medium small shrimp, peeled
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice
- juiced from 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 red onions, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 6 large tortillas
- 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion, red bell pepper in the hot oil, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent and peppers are soft, 6 to 8 minutes.
Stir salt, ginger and chili powder into onion and bell peppers. Stir shrimp into onion and bell peppers and cook until shrimp are opaque and no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat and add the lemon juice to the mixture. Heat a skillet over medium heat and brush with about 1 teaspoon vegetable oil.
Place a tortilla in the hot oil. Spoon about 1/6 shrimp filling and 1/2 cup Mexican cheese blend on one side of tortilla. Fold tortilla in half.
Cook until bottom of tortilla in lightly browned, about 5 minutes, flip and cook other side until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
Served hot. Enjoy!

Sounds great. However I do not like to mix seafood with cheese so I am going to make these with avocado instead of the cheese.
This looks perfect! I was just wondering what to do with some shrimp!
