Cheesy Salmon and Mushroom Quesadillas Author: Canadian Living Credits: Cheesy Salmon and Mushroom Quesadillas

Serve these Canadian-inspired quesadillas with a fruit salsa, such as mango or peach. The filling can be made a few hours in advance and assembled just prior to cooking to keep the tortillas crisp. Cut into small portions to serve as an appetizer.

  • Portion size 5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet (225 g)
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 7 oz (200 g) Brie cheese diced
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 10 flour tortillas

Method

On parchment paper- lined baking sheet, sprinkle salmon with salt with pepper. Bake in 425?F (220?C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested, about 10 minutes. Flake into bowl.

In skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms and onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add to bowl along with cheese and maple syrup; toss to combine.

Divide among 5 of the tortillas, spreading to 1/4 inch (5 mm) of the edge; cover with remaining tortillas, pressing slightly. Brush tops and bottoms with remaining oil.

In large skillet, heat quesadillas over medium heat until golden and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool for 1 minute. Cut each into 6 triangles.
