Crab quesadillas made me quite crabby
When I read this recipe I thought the premise of orange zest and orange juice with cheese and crab was a little strange. Neglecting my gut feelings, I figured the recipe must work and be good, otherwise it wouldn't have gotten 4 out of 5 stars. WRONG! I should have read the other reviews before trying this recipe. The orange zest completely overpowered the dish, leaving a lingering bitterness in my mouth. Sadly, I couldn't even taste the crab. It seemed to get lost amongst all of the zest and cheesy goo. My boyfriend, also disappointed with this dish is making a variation as I type this. He is making a crab cake quesadilla. Cooking the crab into a crab cake, crumbling and mixing with the other ingredients, omitting the orange juice and orange zest. Sounds a lot better, we'll see how it turns out.
Pros: In theory sounded delicious: gooey cheese, delicate flakey crab
Cons: Orange zest was repulsive
