Shrimp Tostadas

Tostadas are crispy fried tortillas topped with just about anything that suits your fancy. Here, we used quick-cooking shrimp for a seafood take on this classic Mexican recipe. An easy lime slaw adds to the crispiness of this dish.

Heat vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium to 350°. Fry tortillas, one at a time, until crisp, flipping halfway through, about 1 minute; drain on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and season with salt.

Toss together coleslaw, cilantro, vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil; season with salt.

Cook shrimp in remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, 23 minutes. Stir in lime juice until absorbed, then season with Tabasco.

Top tostadas with coleslaw, onion, avocado, and shrimp.
