Tandoori Prawn (Shrimp) Quesadillas

Tanduri Prawn or Shrimp Quesadillas
Regular readers might have read my previous posts - Chicken Quesadillas and Mushroom Quesadillas.  Recently, we have found ourselves a new favorite.  Prawn (Shrimp) quesadillas seasoned with desi Tandoori Masala.  Quesadillas with nutrient rich Guacamole makes it a tasty meal.

Ingredients:
Whole Wheat Tortillas - 5
Jumbo Prawns/Shrimps - about 20
Onion - 1 medium
Green Bell Pepper/Capsicum - about 1/2 cup
Sweet Bell Peppers - about 1/2 cup
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs
Garlic - 2 big cloves
Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Tandoori Masala - 1 tbsp
Spanish Paprika - 1/2 tbsp
Cayenne Pepper - 3/4 tsp
Pepper Jack Cheese - about 1 cup
Salt
Oil

How to prepare Tanduri Shrimp Quesadillas:
  • In a mixing bowl, add ginger garlic paste, tandoori masala, Spanish paprika, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, salt and lemon juice.  Add cleaned prawns and coat them well.  Let the prawns marinate for about an hour.
  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F.  Grease a baking dish with about 2 tsp oil.  Add marinated prawns and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.  Alternately, you can cook the prawns on a grill pan too.  After cooling, chop the prawns to small pieces.
  • Medium chop onions and bell peppers.  Finely chop garlic and cilantro.
  • Heat a pan and add about 1 tbsp oil.  Add garlic and saute for few seconds.  Add onions and bell peppers.  Add little salt, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper.  Saute until onions and peppers soften.
  • Place a tortilla on a big plate or a chopping board.  Add the stuffing on one half of the tortilla, so that the other half can be folded on the stuffing.  Add onions, peppers and prawns followed by cheese.
  • Heat a flat pan or a grill pan.  Grease the pan with cooking spray or oil.  Roast the stuffed quesadillas until both sides are slightly brown.
Serve Tanduri Shrimp Quesadillas with sour cream and/or guacamole.
