Preparing Lobster Quesadillas at Home is Easier, Safer with FlyPunch!™
Chef Charles Dale from Renaissance Restuarant, Aspen Shares Summer Recipe
Greenville, SC (July 2015) - Summer is a time for entertaining. The long light of evening lends itself to leisurely, al fresco dinners with friends and family. The idea to make a tantalizing receipe at home is always appealing. For many, cooking elaborate or elegant meals can be a challenge during warmer weather when fresh fruits and vegetables can attract pesky flies. An even greater risk when cooking at home is applying toxic pesticides by spray or vapor to counter these unwanted intruders. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.), the inert ingredient that carries the active ingredient in a pesticide may not be toxic to the targeted pests, but may cause human health problems. A more recent survey from the same organization found 75% of U.S. households use at least one pesticide product in the home. For any home cook wanting to "detoxify" the kitchen with a safer alternativie, Aunt Fannie's, Inc.® has created FlyPunch!™ (www.auntfanniesco.com).
Take for example, the delicious Lobster and Bambina Fontina Quesadillas recipe by Chef Charles Dale from Renaissance Restaurant in Aspen. With the exception of a large mound of fresh lobster, most of the ingredients are very readily available. Paired with a crisp Rose, or Pinot Grigio and a simple green salad, it's a simple yet decadent meal to inspire any guest. More importantly, while the guests feast on scrumptious lobster, those uninvited flies will be drowning in FlyPunch! The recipe and instructions follow below:
1 small red onion, diced
1 small Anaheim pepper, seeded and diced
5 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
1 garlic clove, minced
Kosher salt to taste
12 oz. lobster meat, cooked and chopped
8 large flour tortillas
16 oz. Bambina Fontina, shredded and divided
Mango chutney and cilantro sprig to garnish
· Start in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat, saute onion and pepper in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until tender. Add garlic, season with salt, and cook for 1 additional minute. Remove pan from heat and allow mixture to coll. Stir in chopped lobster meat.
· To assemble quesadillas: lay four tortillas on a flat, clean surface. Cover each tortilla with half of the Bambina Fontina. Evenly distribute the lobster meat between the tortillas. Top each tortilla with the remaining cheese and cover with remaining tortillas. Press down to compact the quesadillas.
· Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a 12" non-stick pand over medium heat. Transfer one quesadillas to the pan and cook each side until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden brown (approx.. 1-2 minutes per side). Repeat with the remaining olive oil and quesadillas.
· To serve: slice quesadillas into quarters, and garnish with mango chutney and a sprig of cilantro.
