Spicy Cilantro Lime Shrimp flavored with a little smoked paprika, freshly squeeze lime, and freshly cut Serrano peppers. Getting your mouth watering yet?
Ok fine, here’s a picture:
Grilled shrimp is my favorite “Crap, I forgot to plan dinner tonight” proteins. It takes no time to thaw, cooks quickly, and I love marinating it with vibrant flavors like cilantro and lime.
And tostadas? Yes, they can be more than a kid food. I’m adding avocado, black beans, a little cabbage and mango salsa to my tostada before topping it with spicy cilantro and lime shrimp.
The shrimp has heat, but isn’t burn your mouth spicy. The serrano pepper gives it nice flavor and heat and is a nice change from using a jalapeno.
If you didn’t know any better you’d think I had a stock in jalapenos with the amount of times I’ve cooked with them in my life!
What I love about these tostadas, is there’s so much on them, you get a different experience in each bite. One bite you’re chowing down on some beans, and avocado, then next you getting hit with those beautiful cilantro lime shrimp and some mango salsa.
And you gotta love that cojita cheese, it’s got a saltiness to it that really adds some good flavor!
And if you’re not in the mood for tostadas check out my cilantro lime shrimp tacos. Those are always a hit on taco night!
