Pacific Northwest Meets Tex-Mex

Smoked Salmon Quesadilla

I bought some awesome smoked salmon Saturday from Crooked River Smokers aka The CFT at the North Union Farmer's Market. I had some on its own, which was fantastic, and decided to use some in a dish. I had no idea what to make until I saw I had one of my grandmother's homemade tortillas left. Thankfully, I had some queso and peppers.

-Sharp cheddar cheese
-Jalapeños (mine were pickled) split with the seeds taken out
-Smoked salmon

Cover one side of the tortilla with the sliced cheese, fold it over and bake in the toaster oven at 300 degrees until melted. Take it out, re-open it and place the jalapeños on one side and the smoked salmon on the other. Refold and place in the toaster oven for a minute or two .

Okay, so I probably didn't need to write the instructions.

It was so tasty. I was impressed at how well the flavors meshed. I'm sure the fact that both the tortilla and the jalapeños came from my grandparents' house made it taste even better.

I have not seen or heard of a better use of the salmon.

It was great to meet you at the Market. And I too love the Town Fryer. Those Oreos are their own animal.
