Saffy’s Salmon Quesadillas

February 3, 2013

Muy Bueno 

I was feeling brave and wanted to try another fish filled Mexican favourite.  I love salmon and I got this idea for a rocking quesadilla, by using all of my favourite Mexican flavours by separating and combining them well.  So when you bite into the toasted sandwich each second brings a new exciting flavour.  Hot, sweet and creamy.  Perfect start to the evening.


(Makes 2 – there will be leftovers, depending on how much you fill the quesadilla)


4 wholemeal tortillas, 2 tbsps guacamole, 50g mature cheddar (grated), 1 tbsp sour cream and chive dip, 2 tsps hot pepper sauce, 2 tsps tomato ketchup, 1 can salmon, 1 courgette (chopped), 200g chopped tomatoes, 1 tsp sugar, 20g chopped green beans, 1 tsp chipotle paste, a handful of jalapeños, 1 tsp mixed herbs, 2 tsps rosemary.



1. Place the tortillas on a foil lined baking tray.
2. In a bowl mix the guacamole, cheddar, chive dip and hot pepper sauce.
3. Spread this on top of 2 of the 4 tortillas.
4. In a large saucepan add  the rest of the ingredients and heat through.
5. Spread the salmon and vegetables on top of the guacamole mix.
6. Layer on the other tortilla.
7. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes, flip the quesadillas after 15 minutes.  Alternatively use a griddle pan or a panini grill.
