Frequently asked questions
1. What to serve with it?
This delicious smoked salmon quesadilla wrap can be served by itself, or with a side like air fryer sweet potato wedges or apple and feta salad with red onion. You can also serve it with this delicious creamy guacamole and tomato salsa.
2. Can you prepare it in advance?
Yes, you can prepare this smoked salmon quesadilla a few hours in advance, and leave it in the fridge.
Just leave it in a glass container and when ready to eat, you can eat it as is or warm it back up in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. I wouldn’t recommend freezing it though, it will get quite soggy.
