  • 8 medium Flour tortillas
  • 1 lb Medium pre-cooked shrimp, shells, tails and veins removed
  • 1 1/4 cups Pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 6 stalks Green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups Pre-shredded cabbage mix
Bang Bang Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Sugar


  1. Make the sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl or jar. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Pat shrimp dry. Toss in cornstarch until lightly coated.
  3. Heat oil in a shallow skillet, until hot. Carefully fry shrimp in batches until pink and opaque-careful not to overcrowd the skillet. Place cooked shrimp onto a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Make first quesadilla by laying out one tortilla, add a few tbsp of cheese, 1/3 cup shrimp, 1/2 cup slaw, 1 tbsp green onions, a little sauce, more cheese and then top with a second tortilla.
  5. Gently heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Spray with nonstick spray or lightly coat with oil.
  7. Add quesadilla and cook 3-4 minutes on the first side, carefully flip then cook 1-2 additional minutes on the second side. Remove from pan and keep warm while you repeat for remaining three quesadillas.
  8. Cut quesadillas into fourths, then top with some of the bang bang sauce and green onions.
  9. Serve warm.
