Fish Tostadas/ Tostadas de Pescado

Posted in : Main Dishes, Uncategorized on by : Marisol Chancellor

I bet you didn’t know this one. “Fish Tostadas” definitely a great way to enhance the flavor of white fish. I cut tilapia fillets into bite size pieces and let it simmer in a sauce made with tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, capers and herbs. The fish gets tender and flavorful with a little kick from the jalapeño pepper. Perfect to serve on top of crispy baked tostadas.

I like to garnish these tostadas with finely shredded lettuce to add a touch of freshness, sweet creamy avocado and finish everything with a squeeze of lime juice. Delicious! But also light and healthy.

Here’s my recipe
