WIAW-Shrimp & Goat Cheese Quesadillas

Happy hump day 🙂 I have one more day left of work before a nice, long, much deserved weekend. Hubs and I have our maternity pictures and a graduation party to attend. I’d like to also take a trip to Ikea, but we’ll see if we have time for that. If not this weekend, then for sure sometime soon, after all, we have a nursery to decorate!

Since fatigue hit me a few weeks ago, I’ve decided that dinners around here are going to be simple & delicious, yet nutritious 🙂 If I don’t feel like cooking, hubs has decided to take over, instead of taking the easy way out and ordering take out. He’s becoming quite the grill master over here.

Last night, the quesadilla maker was put to good use. I made shrimp and goat cheese quesadillas and plantains. They were oh, so good.

I sautéed some shrimp in a pan and once it was warm, I drained out all the excess water and put the pan back on the burner. I then added a little bit of olive oil, squeezed in a lime, and then added some chopped onion and cilantro. I seasoned the mixture with garlic powder, minced onion, and chipotle seasoning.

After I was done with that and the ‘dilla maker was ready, I placed a gf tortilla on the maker and topped it with shrimp and a hefty amount of shredded goat cheese and then topped with another gf tortilla.

Because they’re so easy and quick to make, I told hubs to get ready for a lot of gourmet quesadillas and tacos this summer 🙂

Question: When you’re looking to cook something quick and easy, what’s your go-to meal?

    fish is always my go to – throw it in the oven to bake it and steam some veggies and voila!

    Plantains are a delicious cross between a potato and sweet potato and banana that I have only had once but really liked. I’m not sure that I’d cook them up lots, but they were pretty yum.
    My go to meals are giant salads for sure.

    Yum! Your quesadillas look awesome. I loved that you used goat cheese too! How did you make your plantains? I’ve never made them but I love eating them!

      Thanks! They were really good, goat cheese makes everything better 🙂 these particular plantains were in the frozen section. BUT I have made them before and they are very easy to prepare. You pretty much just slice them, lightly salt them, and fry them in an oil or your choosing.
