A healthier spin on a quesadilla filled with canned wild salmon, arugula, avocado and nourishing ingredients!

Yield: 1 1x


  • 1 five ounce can Safe Catch Wild Salmon
  • 1 tablespoon avocado mayo
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 2 tortillas of choice (I used these)
  • 1 cup baby arugula or leafy greens
  • 2 tablespoons cheese or dairy-free cheese (I loved feta, goat and almond cheese in this)


  • Grease a large skillet with a little avocado oil or butter
  • Strain the salmon from the can and add to a bowl 
  • Add in the mayo, black pepper and hot sauce and mash well like you would tuna salad
  • On top of a tortilla, add the salmon, arugula, avocado and cheese of choice
  • Add another tortilla on top (grease the top of the tortilla) then add to the skillet and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes then flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the tortilla is crispy!
  • Enjoy while warm
