Cheesy Grilled Crab Quesadillas from afarmgirlsdabbles.com

Long before Blake and I ever boarded the Ruby Princess to Alaska, I vowed to eat all the fresh Alaskan fish and seafood I could get my hands on while we were away. At the top of my list was the delectable king crab – one of my favorite meals from the ocean, right alongside shrimp. I came home feeling deeply satisfied with the amount of crab I was able to consume that week, so incredibly sweet and tender, and of course drenched in melted butter. But I just had to have a little bit more once we got back to Minnesota. These Cheesy Grilled Crab Quesadillas are a riff on ones I enjoyed for lunch at our first port, Ketchikan, Alaska. Be sure to read on after the recipe for more about Ketchikan and our float plane excursion experience.
