Simple Salmon Quesadillas


  • 1 6 ounce can boneless, skinless salmon, drained and flaked

  • 1/2 medium orange or yellow bell pepper, finely diced (about 1/2 cup)

  • 2 oz herbed goat cheese (about 1/4 cup)

Pacific Northwest wild canned salmon finds a new home inside a classic Southwestern quesadilla.


  • Combine the salmon, bell pepper, goat cheese, and capers in a bowl. Divide the mixture evenly and spread over half of each tortilla. Fold over, press down gently, and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the quesadillas and cook until the tortillas become crisp and golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the tortillas and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  • Cut each quesadilla in half or quarters and serve.
