Shrimp Quesadillas Transcript

Hi there, Jess in the Rada kitchen, thanks for joining me. Today we’re going to make an appetizer that you can serve at your next gameday get-together. It’s an appetizer packed with shrimp and spinach, a lighter version of the traditional spinach and artichoke dip. Let’s go ahead and get started.

Using my French Chef knife, we are going to chop some scallions. I’m just going to remove the ends and tops. Discard. And again with my Rada French Chef knife. And set aside. Next I have some shrimp that I’ve deveined, peeled, and precooked. Again, just a rough chop. Let’s go ahead and slice our lemon, set that aside when we’re ready for the juice, and chop up our 3 cloves of garlic.

The next step is to whip our Neufchatel cheese until it’s nice and fluffy. Now we’re adding in our Greek yogurt. About ½ cup. To our whipped mixture we’re going to add chopped garlic, about half a teaspoon of red pepper flake, then some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Give it a good shake and combine with my mixing spatula.

Now we’re ready to add all the other components to our filling. First up, our scallions. First up, add our chopped spinach and quartered artichoke hearts. Our precooked chopped shrimp, and lastly, our part-skim mozzarella cheese that’s been shredded, and some shredded low-fat Parmesan. Let’s go ahead and mixing that up with my Rada Mixing Spatula. Now, let’s go ahead and fill our quesadillas. Taking our whole wheat tortilla, I’m going to spray the bottom with extra virgin olive oil. I’m going to spread out a third cup of our mixture on the tortilla. Get a nice, even layer. Take our second tortilla, spray the top, and we’re ready for the frying pan.

I’m going to give my pan a coat of spray, place my quesadilla on the pan, and it’s going to cook about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. So both sides of my quesadilla are lightly golden brown, I’m going to remove this from the pan, set on my Rada Baking Stone, and place into a warm oven until I’m ready to serve.

So here we have our finished product, our shrimp, spinach, and artichoke quesadillas. Be sure that you hop onto and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Thanks so much for joining me today!
