Salmon Quesadillas

Yup another quesadilla i checked today i actually don't have many quesadilla recipes on here at all. since i found out about la factory tortilla i love using them! i also buy the 100 calorie ones so this quesadilla is 380 calories. i never had a salmon quesadilla before and this was amazing i adapted the recipe from Sandra lee with just salmon avocado,tomatoes and cheese very simple! 

serving size- 1 quesadilla. calories-380 carbs-17.5  fat- 14.5 protein-14.5 fiber-15

1 salmon fillet, shredded (i used half of my fillet depends on how big the fillet is)
mixed cheese, mozzarella and cheddar
1/2 a avocado
1/2 a tomato
juice from half a lemon
1 tortilla
salt and pepper to taste
oil olive spray
salsa and sour cream (optional)

First make the guacamole, so in a small bowl, mash the avocado. Chop the tomatoes in small pieces and add the tomatoes to the avocado bowl. 

Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside.Shred the smoked salmon using a fork. Shred the cheese. spray tortilla with olive oil spray on both sides.

When skillet gets hot add tortilla. Over the tortilla add cheese,salmon, guacamole, and another layer of cheese. 

fold tortilla over and gently flatten with spatula and flip the quesadilla over let it brown slightly. Cook for another min until the cheese melts.

Serve warm with sour cream and salsa on the side.


  1. Those quesadillas look really good!

  2. I could eat salmon everyday and not get tired of them. Thanks for the inspiration. This looks like a great recipe!

  3. I'm making these now. My house smells DELICIOUS.

  4. I made these for my girlfriend after she found the recipe and they were delicious. I used some convienient frozen salmon pieces, ready made guacomole because it was on offer and I didn't use any oil on the tortilla because I used a non stick pan, but otherwise they were exactly the same. Will definately be back here for more recipes! Thanks!

  5. awesome! ya i also used frozen salmon its hard to find out here in the midwest fresh.
