Grilled Salmon Quesadillas with Cucumber Salsa

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1 (3/4-inch-thick) salmon fillet (about 8 ounces)
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese, crumbled
2 fresh jalapeño peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
Garnish: fresh cilantro sprigs


Grill salmon, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 5 minutes on each side, until fish flakes with fork. Cool; and flake.

Spoon salmon evenly over 4 tortillas; top evenly with cheeses and pepper slices, cover with remaining tortillas.

Cook tortillas in a large nonstick skillet over high heat 1 minute on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned and cheese melts. Cut each into 4 triangles, and top with Cucumber Salsa and fresh cilantro sprigs, if desired.
