Nutritionally Diverse

Move over Cheerios and milk and welcome “Grilled Shrimp Tostadas” for dinner (compliments of eatingwell.com).  This is an easy pescatarian recipe that is simple to make and that everyone will love because there are so many different layers of tastes and flavors that it’s impossible not to enjoy. It’s quick and easy and supplies fuel from almost every single food group, so it’s nutritious and delicious!

The best part is that it only takes a total of 20 minutes to create in your kitchen. The recipe easily doubles for a crowd. The Tajin is a spice made of lime, salt and chili peppers. It can be ordered on Amazon, Walmart and even Target. The crumbled cotija should really not be substituted if you can help it, because it’s a truly authentic Mexican cheese made from cow’s milk that has a salty and milky flavor. Similar to feta, but tastes oh so different…you can find this cheese in Latin American stores and even Market Basket if you live in the north east. So, so, good..

Easy pescatarian recipe to make and great for any season

You can use your outdoor grill, air fryer or a cast iron skillet to sear the shrimp. Toast the corn tortillas on your grill or grill pan as well. This can be made any time of the year. The toppings of red cabbage, guacamole and jalapenos round this off perfectly. This can be served with any leftover red cabbage you might have – shred, add balsamic vinegar, olive oil and a little salt and you have a delicious side salad that is refreshing and pairs perfectly with your tostadas.
