Chipotle Shrimp Tostadas


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, plus more for frying
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • kosher salt
  • 24 large shelled and de-veined shrimp (about a pound)
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and cut on a 1/2 inch dice
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 Hass avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • lime wedges for serving


In a medium, deep skillet, heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.  Fry 1 tortilla at a time until lightly golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes.  Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.

Preheat a grill pan.  In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and the chipotle chili powder and kosher salt. Grill the shrimp over medium high heat, turning once, until they are browned in spots and cooked through, about 4 minutes.

In a bowl, toss the cabbage with the tomato, scallions, sour cream and lime juice.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Set the tortillas on plates and top with the cabbage slaw, chipotle shrimp, avocado, radishes and cilantro.  Serve with a lime wedge.  Squeeze that lime over the tostadas and Enjoy!
