10 quesadillas

  • 2 pounds thawed frozen or fresh cooked lobster meat
  • 10 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 pounds cream cheese
  • 1 pound Cheddar, shredded
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped
  • 1 roasted red onion, chopped
  • 3 roasted plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons Sriracha (Thai hot sauce, available at most markets)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. F. Cut onion and tomatoes in half and place on a baking sheet. Put into hot oven and roast for 15 minutes or until softened. Remove and let cool slightly and coarsely chop.

  • Combine all ingredients together in a mixer except for tortillas and lobster meat. On an 8 inch flour tortilla, spread 1/2 cup of the mixture and 3 ounces of lobster meat evenly on 1/2 of tortilla and fold over to create a half moon shape. Repeat with each tortilla.

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and pan-fry tortilla until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
