Super Simple Shrimp Tostadas

Fresh, tasty, and healthy! These 6 ingredient Tostadas are the perfect simple lunch or dinner that is packed with protein and of course guac!

You’re in a pinch! You don’t even want to eye another lean meat and vegetable meal that you’ve had for the last 3 days…

Then these Super Simple Healthy Tostadas are for You!

What do I need?

Good news! It isn’t much!

  • corn tortillas
  • guacamole (I used good foods as i’s my favorite store bought guacamole)
  • cilantro
  • taco seasoning
  • shrimp
  • feta cheese

Aside from a dash of salt and optional oil you should be good.

How In The Heck Do I Make A Crunchy Tostada?

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  2. Spray one or both sides of the corn tortillas with avocado or olive oil non-stick spray
  3. Add them flat onto a pan and sprinkle sea salt over them
  4. Bake them in the oven for 4-5 minutes on each side and flip them halfway through. If you would like extra crispy tostadas bake them for another 2 minutes on each side, just watch them closely to be sure they don’t burn.

What Seasoning Should I Use?

Unfortunately, most taco seasonings you find in the store contain added sugar. Sigh, I know it’s a shame, but you are in luck! I have a natural recipe that involves zero added sugar and contains most spices you likely have in your cubboards.

  • 2 Tbsp cumin
  • 3 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1.5 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp sea salt

Just mix this all up in a small bowl and then store the seasoning in either a ziploc bag or in a small airtight container.

You can use any taco seasoning for this recipe though if you’re in a pinch. I know I would be lying if I said I always had my taco seasoning on deck to use at all times.

Perhaps one of my favorite things about making these is how fancy I feel eating a tostada from my couch, although I know it only took about 15 minutes.

The protein from the shrimp, fat from guacamole, and carbs from corn tortilla make for a healthy and satisfying meal that keeps me full well after that 3 PM snack attack time.

Ingredients

  • 4 corn tortillas

  • 2 tsp avocado oil
  • 1.5 tsp taco seasoning (my recipe for this is above, but any taco seasoning will do)
  • dash of sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp guacamole (I used Good Foods Store bought Guac, and it’s the best I’ve ever had from a store)
  • 3 Tbsp crumbled feta (I used reduced fat feta, but feel free to use whichever you like)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray the corn tortilla shells with non-stick spray on one or both sides.
  2. Sprinkle sea salt over the corn tortillas and bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes on each side, flipping them over halfway through. if you prefer very crispy tostadas you can add another 1-2 minutes on each side but watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
  3. While the tostadas burn heat a pan over medium-high heat with the oil. Add the seasoning to the shrimp and then add the shrimp to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. If you have larger shrimp you may want to cook them closer to 3 minutes. once they are done cooking set aside.
  4. Chop the cilantro and set aside.
  5. Remove the tostadas from the oven and let the tostadas cool for a few minutes and then add the guacamole to the tostadas.
  6. Add the shrimp to the tostadas, then the feta and chopped cilantro.
  7. Squeeze a lime over the top and enjoy!
