Crispy corn tortillas topped with fresh-made guacamole, lettuce, and flavorful sautéed shrimp make a quick, easy lunch or light dinner.

Ingredients

  • 4 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Chopped lettuce, about 2 cups
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream

For the guacamole:

  • 2 ripe Hass avocados
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet and lightly brush them with vegetable oil on both sides. Bake until toasted and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • While the tortillas bake, prepare the guacamole. Halve the avocados lengthwise, twist apart and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh into a bowl and add the lime juice, jalapeño, garlic, tomato, and cilantro. Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
  • Coat the bottom of a large frying pan with vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, sprinkle with the cumin and coriander, add a pinch of cayenne. Sauté until the shrimp turn pink and opaque, 2 to 3 minutes, remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To assemble the tostadas, spread a serving of guacamole on each tortilla, top with lettuce, shrimp and a dollop of sour cream. Serve immediately.
