Fish Tostadas with Chili-Lime Cream

These are definitely going to be a normal dish from now on! I was amazed at the taste combination and can't wait to make them again, even the kids asked for seconds! Do not be put off by the fact that these are fish, they are really fantastic!

1 lb. fresh tilapia or cod fillets
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 lime, halved
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
8 6-inch tostada shells
2 cups shredded cabbage mix
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and sliced (optional)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered (optional)
Bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)

1. Preheat broiler. Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon of the chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. For chili-lime cream, in bowl squeeze 2 teaspoons juice from half the lime. Stir in sour cream, garlic powder, and remaining chili powder; set aside. Cut remaining lime half in wedges for serving.

2. Place fish on unheated greased broiler rack; tuck under thin edges. Place shells on baking sheet on lowest rack. Broil fish 4 inches from heat 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness, until fish flakes with fork. Break in chunks. Serve tostadas with cabbage, chili-lime cream, avocado, tomatoes, lime, and pepper sauce. Serves 4.

  1. cool blog, i will use it as well as start watching the food network when i finally decide to learn how to cook! one day i will get tired of pasta.

  2. Do you eat fish even? I will eventually be posting meat-free recipes but I only cook big meals about 3 times a week, sometimes less depending on schedules. I don't cook big dinners when Dan is on shift and the days he's home we are somethimes so busy that we just throw something small together. Don't worry, by the end of this year, my blog will be full of yummy things!
