Fish Tostadas With Chili Lime Cream Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Fish Tostadas With Chili Lime Cream

While I'm a huge fan of the Baja-style fish taco, with crispy fried fish and a soft corn shell, when I make Mexican seafood dishes at home, I prefer not to fry the fish. Instead, I broil or bake it. This recipe is a perfect example of that simple technique. It tops crunchy tostada shells with broiled tilapia, shredded cabbage, and a chili lime cream. The resulting meal, which tastes healthy and fresh, is full of textures and flavor. To make this for your family, get the recipe.
