Langostino Quesadillas with Mangos & Cilantro

Langostino Quesadillas

I always keep a frozen bag of Shrimp or Langostino Tails from Trader Joe’s on hand. The reason? Days like today when I’m feeling like something fun!

Grab a bag of your favorite little fishies, thaw and cook in a skillet with Eggplant Garlic Spread from Trader Joe’s… the same mouth watering mixture I’ve used for tacos that will tickle your taste buds! Add a squeeze of lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, chili power and italian seasoning to taste.

Next, grab some of the best whole grain tortillas you can find – Ezekiel always has great options!

In a skillet sprayed with non-stick, put your first tortilla down and sprinkle with 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice. I use a low-fat mixed blend.

Top with your cooked fishies mix (make sure to spoon it out of the skillet, leaving extra juices behind). Sprinkle with another 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded cheese and your second tortilla.

Let it all melt together, flip, brown the other side and transfer onto a plate when finished. Split your quesadilla with a loved one or save half for later!

To make it all a little more exciting, chop up some mangos and cilantro to have on the side. I use frozen mangos I always keep on hand for smoothies, creative kitchen adventures, etc… In this case, I actually had extra mangos that I thawed while making my Tricolor Quinoa Salad and decided to give them a taste with my Langostino Quesadillas….. Let me just tell you, it was the right decision because this combo is deeeeelicious!
