How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

The quesadillas were wonderful! I did make some changes- no orange juice and green onions because I didn't have them. I also used avocado instead of zucchini and corn. Not everyone in my family likes zucchini. I feel confident the recipe is good as is, however. I did not make the avocado salad. We had couscous.

I used a Cuisinart Griddler to panini-grill the shrimp on skewers and also panini-grill the quesadillas and it worked perfectly. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and not rubbery. My husband, who is not a fan of seafood on a normal day, adored these and asked for them again. The spice level is also very nice; not too much, not too little.
