New Recipe--Thumbs UP!

We try to eat fish at least once a week, preferrably more. I'm always looking for new recipes to try and saw this recently and decided to try it tonight for dinner. I first asked the 'guys' in the house if they would be willing to try fish tostadas with pineapple salsa. After a bit of thinking they both said they would! We all enjoyed them and my husband even said "this will be a repeat recipe"!! It's a healthy, flavorful meal.

Fish Tostadas


1 can of pineapple rings drained and cut into small pieces

2 avocadoes, diced

2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

1 small jalapeno seeded and diced

Mix together and set aside to combine flavors.

Bean layer:

In a frying pan with a small amount of olive oil saute 4-6 garlic cloves sliced thin. Do not brown.

Add one bunch of kale, chopped, and saute to wilt. Cook for 5 minutes. Add 2-4 cups of white beans, drained, and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes and let set.

Tostada Shells

Fry corn tortillas in a small amount of oil until crispy and drain on paper towels.

Be sure your oil is hot when you put the tortillas in the pan or they will absorb too much oil.


I used talapia fish fillets but you can use what is on sale or your favorite. I'm all about being frugal!

Bake the fillets in the oven at 375 for approximately 15 minutes. This will depend on the size and thickness of your fish. You want them to crisp up a bit but not dry out, so watch them carefully.

I drizzled a bit of olive oil on them and put salt and pepper on both sides.

While the fish cooks you can fry your tortillas.

This is an EASY recipe. It takes a bit of time but anyone can do this! Layer the shells with beans, then fish pieces, salsa, and a dollop of sour cream.

***If you try this, I'd love to hear what you think!!!
