Spicy and tropical, these Surimi and Papaya Quesadillas are accompanied by a cool mango cream for a Mexican inspired dish straight from the Gulf of Mexico. The surimi and papaya mixture is made from a combination of cream cheese, chili peppers, and roasted red peppers and seasoned with garlic, fresh coriander and lime. Heated until golden on each side, these seafood quesadillas are a delicious lunch option during the summer.

Ingredients

  • 170 grams cream cheese (goat, or fresh goat cheese, crumbled)
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • 1/2 onion (small, chopped)
  • 1 red chili pepper (fresh, chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (roasted, peeled and chopped, or marinated red pepper)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander (chopped)
  • 1/2 lime (or lemon)
  • 200 grams surimi (sticks, or crabsticks, crumbled)

  • 4 tortilla (wraps, flour or corn)
  • 1 mango (large, ripe, peeled, stoned and chopped)

  • lemon juice (to taste)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the cheese, garlic, onion, peppers, chili, coriander, salt, and lime juice.
  2. Add the surimi and papaya, and mix carefully so as not to squash the papaya.
  3. Lightly grease a heavy frying pan with olive oil.
  4. Place a quarter of the mixture on one half of a tortilla wrap and fold over.
  5. Heat the frying pan and brown the quesadilla for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden on the outside and hot on the inside.
  6. Repeat this action with the remaining tortillas.
  7. To prepare the mango cream, place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
