For the Shrimp Quesadillas recipe, Good Housekeeping suggests using frozen, shelled and deveined cooked shrimp. Thaw, drain and pat the shrimp dry to begin the recipe.

Once the shrimp is ready, toss 2 cups of shredded Pepper Jack cheese, 1/3 a cup of chopped fresh cilantro and 1 teaspoon of chili powder. Place 1/2 pound of chopped shrimp on 4 8-inch tortillas. Top these with the cheese mixture and another tortilla on each. Cook them in a hot, non-stick 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until they are golden on both sides, approximately three minutes.

For the Lemon-Garlic Marinated Shrimp, place 3 tablespoons of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil in a small skillet. Cook this over medium heat until it is fragrant, or about one minute. Next, add 1/4 of a cup of lemon juice, 1/4 of a cup of minced fresh parsley, 1/2 a teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Then toss this mixture in a large bowl with 1 1/4 pounds of cooked shrimp. Chill this until it is ready to serve. Eating Well suggests covering and refrigerating this appetizer for up to two hours.
