Cajun Grilled Fish Fillet Quesadilla with Spanish Rice

When it comes to convenience it's no surprise that even I turn to frozen foods to help put dinner on the table in a hurry. Gorton's has a large selection of seafood products to choose from and their website has an even larger selection of recipes to make. After hosting a giveaway from their company they were kind enough to pass along a handful of coupons to me for free product. I already loved their products beforehand and now I have even more reasons to love.

Because of these coupons I have been able to try out products, risk free (cost wise), and have found some new items I enjoy that I wouldn't have thought to purchase before such as these All Natural Cajun Grilled Blackened Fillets.

Mr. Sideline Chef had come home after a long days work and thinking we had enough leftovers to make a meal realized I was wrong. Thankfully I had planned out some meals for a couple of days and had the ingredients on hand to make this recipe.

Makes 4 Servings

And Action:

Prepare the All Natural Cajun Grilled Blackened Fillets according to the package directions.

While those are cooking, bring the water and salsa to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in the white rice, cover and remove from the heat for 5 minutes. *Note: I didn't follow this step exactly. I didn't have instant rice so I brought 2 cups of water and the salsa to a boil, added the rice, and then covered and simmered for the 15 minutes while the fish cooked.

The Cajun fillets on their own were delicious but took this meal over the top!
Lay 2 tortillas on a baking sheet and lay 2 fish fillets on each tortilla. Smash the fillet down and spread it to the edges of the tortilla. Top each with 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.

Broil until the cheese is melted. Top each half with the other tortilla and cut into wedges. Serve immediately with the Spanish rice. Optional: Serve with some guacamole, sour cream, and salsa.
