How to Make Healthy Shrimp Taco Tostadas


  1. 2 cups packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
    1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
    3 tablespoons reduced-calorie mayonnaise
    4 teaspoons water
    2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
    1/2 teaspoon (or to taste) canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon (or to taste) table salt, divided
    2 sprays cooking spray
    4 small corn tortillas, 4 inches each
    6 ounces (about 12 large) uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Combine slaw mix, cilantro, mayonnaise, water, lime juice, chipotle chilies, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl, then set aside.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, then heat over medium-high heat. Add tortillas and cook until crisp and golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove tortillas and set aside.
  3. Off heat, coat the same skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle shrimp with cumin and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt, then add shrimp to skillet. Cook shrimp until lightly browned and cooked through, turning once, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Place a tortilla on each of 4 serving plates and evenly divide slaw mixture over top. Top each with 3 shrimp and serve.
