These rainbow trout quesadillas are an interesting take on Southwestern cuisine.


  • 12 (4 ounces each) rainbow trout fillets
  • 3/4 pound shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 pound shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 12 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 quart tomato salsa
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 4 avocados (medium, 48 count)


  • Season trout fillets with salt and pepper; sauté or grill until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove and discard skin; break up trout into bite size pieces. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Per order: arrange 1/4 cup of each cheese over half of one tortilla. Top cheese with 1/3 cup trout and 1/3 cup salsa; fold tortilla in half. Place tortilla on hot, dry griddle; cook, turning once, until tortilla is lightly browned on both sides and cheese is melted. Cut into quarters and serve with 2 tablespoons sour cream, and 1/3 of a peeled, sliced avocado.
  • Variation: Substitute 4 cups flaked, smoked Rainbow Trout for Clear-Cuts® Boneless Rainbow Trout fillets.
