Gecko Grill Shrimp Mango Quesadillas

***For those of you who are not lucky enough to live near Gecko Grill, this is a close second. This was just enough to feed my family of 5.

Ingredients1 pound raw shrimp, peeled, tails removed and chopped into 1/4″ pieces1 large, ripe mango, peeled and diced1 1/2 cups monterey jack cheese, grated6 10″ flour tortillas2 TBS honey3 TBS butter1 limeS & PSour cream
Directions: In large skillet, melt 1 TBS butter. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Add to melted butter and cook until bright pink, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and drain any juices that were released. In same skillet, melt remaining 2 TBS butter and honey together, cook 2 minutes until thickened. Add shrimp back to pan, squeeze lime over shrimp, toss together and remove from heat.
In a clean preheated skillet, sprinkle one side of the tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese, 1/6 of mango chunks and 1/6 shrimp mixture. Fold over and cook until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut into wedges and serve with additional lime wedges and sour cream.
