Roughly chop greens
Core and dice bell pepper
Rinse lobster in colander, pat dry with paper towels & cut into bite size pieces. Toss with old bay spice blend in a small bowl
Step 1: Prepare Salad
Toss chopped greens in a large bowl with the vinaigrette and set aside in refrigerator.
Step 2: Cook lobster filling
In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt butter/garlic/shallot mixture. Add diced bell peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes until just starting to get tender. Add seasoned lobster and cook for 2-4 minutes until just pink. Add corn and mix through. Turn off heat and set aside.
Step 3: Assemble quesadillas
Brush / rub a drizzle of olive oil on one side of each tortilla. Place oiled side down on a clean cutting board or work surface. Spread a dollop of tarragon sour cream evenly over half of the tortillas provided – ensuring some of the sour cream is reserved for a dip; add a sprinkle of the cheese blend to the tortillas with sour cream. Spoon lobster mixture evenly on top of the tortillas and place a second tortilla on top, with the side brushed with olive oil facing up – effectively making a tortilla sandwich.
Step 4: Prepare tortillas [see Tip Below]
Wipe out skillet used to cook the lobster mixture using clean paper towels; place over medium heat. Working one quesadilla at a time, carefully transfer each quesadilla to skillet using a spatula; cook 2-3 minutes per side or until tortilla is browned and cheese melts. Repeat with each quesadilla.
Step 5: To serve
Cut each quesadilla into slices and plate evenly, serve with tropical salsa and greens together with the reserved sour cream.
Tip: If cooking for a larger group, place cooked quesadillas in oven [Temp 275f] to keep warm with foil loosely covering it.
