Cut into smaller wedges, smoked salmon quesadillas make wonderful warm appetizers. Add a crisp green salad for a delicious fast-fix light supper.

4 ounces smoked salmon
2 ounces goat cheese
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, drained
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh dill weed, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt
White pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 (7-inch) flour tortillas

Cut the salmon into 6 thin slices. Mix together the goat cheese, horseradish, sour cream and 1 teaspoon of the dill weed. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add enough olive oil to a skillet to lightly coat the bottom. Place the skillet over medium-high heat; when hot add a tortilla. Heat through and lightly brown, turning once. Remove to a warmed platter and loosely cover.

With all tortillas warmed, spread 1/3 of the goat cheese mixture on one-half of each tortilla. Add 2 slices of the salmon to each tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped dill weed and sprinkle with lemon juice. Fold tortilla over to form quesadilla. With the heat turned off, you can carefully set the folded and uncut quesadillas back into the warm skillet to keep them warm while filling the remaining tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 4 – 6 wedges. Serve immediately.

Yield: 12 – 18 wedges

Wine, garlic, ginger and extra virgin olive oil create a classic marinade for fresh scallops. This quickly prepared main course makes an elegant impression.

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, mashed or ground
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 Chablis
1-1/2 pounds fresh scallops
Skewers
Lemon and/or lime wedges

Lightly rinse the scallops and drain well. In a large bowl, mix the ginger and garlic. Add the olive oil, soy sauce and Chablis and stir to blend well. Add the scallops to the marinade and turn to coat. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

Position your broiler rack about 2 inches below the heat. If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for 20 – 30 minutes before threading.

Turn on the broiler to preheat. Remove the scallops from the marinade and thread onto skewers, leaving a little space between each scallop to encourage even cooking. Place the skewered scallops on an oiled broiler rack and place the rack below the broiler. Cook the scallops for 4 – 6 minutes, turning and basting with marinade frequently. The scallops are done when they loose their translucence and you might see a bit of light golden brown.

Serve with wedges of lemon and/or lime.
