Instructions
  1. Use kitchen shears to cut Alaska Crab shells open and remove crabmeat. Chop or shred meat, if desired. Squeeze excess moisture out of
  2. crabmeat and toss with lime juice. Set aside.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions and jalapeos until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the
  4. zucchini or squash blossoms, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until the zucchini or squash blossoms
  5. have just turned soft, about 5 to 7 minutes more. Toss in crabmeat; taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F.
  7. In a bowl, combine the three cheeses. Lay the tortillas out on a counter. Divide the cheese mixture into 6 portions and arrange one portion
  8. over half of each tortilla. Divide the crab and zucchini mixture into 6 portions and sprinkle evenly over the cheese. Fold over each
  9. tortilla to enclose the filling.
  10. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  11. Place a cast-iron griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Brush one side of a quesadilla with melted butter and place buttered side down
  12. in the pan. Cook until very light golden, about 1 minute. Then brush the uncoated side with butter and flip over. Cook until the other side
  13. is golden, and transfer to a baking sheet. When all the quesadillas are browned, transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake 10 minutes,
  14. or until the cheese begins to ooze. Serve hot, whole or cut into wedges, accompanied by your favorite salsa.
  15. * Can't find the right cheese? Instead of panela cheese, try ricotta or a mild feta. For a cotija or aejo cheese substitute, a salty, hard
  16. cheese like parmesan works well.
