Baja Fish and Avocado Tostada
This my friends is what summer eating is all about! This fish tostada recipe is so easy, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you have dinner on the table! Most of you know that I do wine reviews on Sunday, which happens to be the day that we drink our wine too. Around 4-ish on Sunday, we sit down with some olives, cheese and crackers and taste our way through a bottle of wine. It’s a job, people. One I made up, yes, but still..
The only problem with drinking half a bottle of wine (we are very big on keeping things even in the Sidewalk Shoes – we split the wine 50/50 – eyeballing every pour to make sure!), is that after consuming a half a bottle of wine, I have to make dinner. As you can imagine, dinner has to be easy, not involve sharp utensils, and not be too complicated so as not to spoil my wine buzz.
So, when I saw these Baja Fish and Avocado Tostadas from Cooking Light, they looked like a winner! The only thing was that they called for pan seared tilapia and tortillas crisped up in the oven. That’s using the stove and the oven – too much, and besides I didn’t want to have to come in from the back porch – so I changed it all over to the grill. Super easy and super fast.
I did all of the chopping ahead of time and placed each ingredient in it’s own covered container in the fridge. I halved the avocado, removed the pit and cut the checkerboard pattern in it and then closed the two halves together so they wouldn’t brown and then all I had to do was scoop it out when I was ready.
When it was time to grill (I have a propane – don’t worry I’m not trying to light charcoal), I just brought out the salt and peppered fish, the tostadas and some spray olive oil.
I lightly misted the tortillas and toasted them on the grill. Then sprayed the fish and grilled it on a small perforated grate. Easy peasy. Then I just had to assemble the tostadas! This is a very simple tostada. There is no salsa or sauce, you simply squirt a lime on top. We liked it this way, but feel free to add any other toppings that you would like!
