We are some serious taco lovers in my house, but sometimes I cheat on my tacos with a Tostada. Not just any Tostada, grilled shrimp tostadas. Now you see how it happened, right? Love at first bite. Big juicy shrimp, lime juice, garlic, spices, Siracha. This is hot stuff.
But sometimes we need a little heat in our lives. These tacos can be in your mouth in just minutes and you can stop licking the screen.
You will need about 1 1/2 pounds plump juicy shrimp
Fresh garlic adds lots of intense flavor
Lime juice will brighten the taste.
Cilantro adds flavor, texture and is a great garnish
Cabbage tastes better in seafood tostadas and tacos. I love the red for color and texture, but I also love to mix red and green shredded cabbage for shrimp and fish tacos or tostadas
Fresh Avocado adds that special something to these Tostadas
This Siracha adds the perfect hint of heat
And then you have this delectable finished work of art
1 1/2 pounds shrimp
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 minced garlic clove
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
Skewers for grilling shrimp
6-8 six inch corn tortillas
2 avocados sliced
2 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Mix oil and spices and toss shrimp in the mixture. Oil the grill and preheat to medium. Place shrimp on skewers and then cook on grill about 2 minutes per side until shrimp is completely cooked through.
Grill tortillas for about 30 seconds on each side, or use a skillet if you don't have a grill. Top each tortilla with Cabbage, Avocado, Cilantro Shrimp and Siracha.
