Tostadas are my second favorite Mexican food. Next to Tacos of course!
Garlic Shrimp and Spinach Tostadas are filled with flavor, only require one pan and are perfect for lunch or dinner.
This recipe for Garlic Shrimp and Spinach Tostada was one of the first meals my ex-husband made me when we were dating. He called it a Popeye Tostada, I called it delicious! Loaded with fantastic flavors piled on top of a crunchy tostada.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 a medium onion
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 1 cup cooked shrimp
Place olive oil in pan and sauté garlic and onion until slightly browned.
Add shrimp, cook together for 2-3 minutes on medium heat.
Add spinach and cook until wilted.
Arrange on top of tostadas and serve with salsa, crumbled feta or sliced jalapeños.
You can top these tostadas with just about anything. Finely grated cheese, feta, salsa, beans – really anything you would like to combine with the savory garlic shrimp.
What is a tostada? The actual word tostada means “toasted” so it can mean a variety of different things in Latin America. For me, and for these recipes, I am referring to a hard tortilla – my favorite brand are Charras and are available at most grocery stores and WalMart – try the Charras Tostados Jalapeno for a bit of spice.
