Grilled Shrimp Tostadas

Grilled Shrimp Tostada

These shrimp tostadas are one of my go-to meals. Don’t be intimidated by the fact that there’s a separate recipe for the sauce. Although it’s super easy to whip up, you can just use some sour cream if you’re in a rush.

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large shrimp (peeled)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (I use Trader Joe's Chili Flavored Oil)
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 3 limes, cut into quarters
  • kosher salt (to taste)
  • chili powder (to taste)
  • tostadas
  • 2-3 cups shredded lettuce
  • green tomatillo salsa
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • fresh cilantro to garnish
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons mayonaise
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Instructions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. I use an indoor grill pan.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, and cumin. Set aside. (I like to pour into a small sandwich bag and squeeze through a small hole in the corner. Easy clean up!)
  3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, chili powder and garlic. Toss shrimp in mixture.
  4. In small sauce pan, start heating beans over low heat.
  5. Place the shrimp on grill. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until the shrimp are opaque.
  6. Remove from grill. Lightly salt the shrimp. Squeeze with juice of one lime.
  7. Top tostada with beans, a sprinkle of pepper jack, shredded lettuce, cilantro and shrimp. Top with tomatillo sauce and sour cream mixture. Serve with remaining wedges of lime.
