Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat grill to high (about 450°) and put a grill pan on it. In a medium bowl, toss shrimp with garlic, salt, spices, orange juice, and oil.

  • Divide half of cheeses among tortillas, leaving half of each tortilla bare. Top cheese with zucchini, corn, and green onions. Top vegetables with remaining cheeses.

  • Oil grill pan, using tongs and a wad of oiled paper towels. Grill shrimp in pan, turning once, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Coarsely chop shrimp, scatter over cheese on tortillas, and fold tortillas to close.

  • Grill quesadillas on cooking grate, turning once with a wide spatula, until cheese melts and tortillas are golden, about 2 minutes per side.

  • Mix salad ingredients gently in a bowl and arrange on plates. Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve them alongside salad.

  • Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.
