Smoked Salmon with Herbed Cheese Quesadilla

Smoked Salmon with Herbed Cheese Quesadilla

Quesadilla is primarily made of cheese inside a tortilla and cooked until the cheese melts. It means “cheese in tortilla” in Spanish. Smoked salmon, on the other hand, is a preparation of salmon, usually a fillet, that has been cured and then hot or cold smoked. Due to its extensive preparation process, it is a moderately highly priced delicacy all over the world.  Combine the two and you will have one of the best yet easiest appetizers you’ll ever taste!
