Parmesan Crusted Shrimp Quesadillas


Recipe: Parmesan Crusted Shrimp Quesadillas

Summary: Apparently these quesadillas are one of their most popular dishes. And with good reason — they are are muy, muy, muy delicioso. Seasoned shrimp is paired with fresh avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, lots of melted cheese, and then of course, sandwiched between parmesan-crusted tortillas. Ridiculously good. So now after seven years of ordering them at the restaurant, the lightbulb suddenly went off and I decided to try making them at home. Why I waited so long? I now have no idea. These were a complete, Parmesan-y success.


  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 white or yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and finely diced (**use more or less for desired level of heat**)

  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
