Tuna Tostadas: an Easy Dinner Idea

This is not your regular tostada. This is a piled-high chip-full of perfection. Fish tostadas are something I’ve made a lot over the years and it is always a crowd pleaser. And it’s sooo easy… it’s basically nachos. This one has feta cheese and seared tuna with a drizzle of Cholula. Recipe below:

Makes four:

  1. About half a can of refried beans heated and stirred with a couple tablespoons of water
  2. Four tostada shells
  3. Half a white onion, chopped finely
  4. Two small tuna steaks
  5. Four oz crumbled feta cheese
  6. A few sprigs of thyme
  7. One small avocado, sliced

Spread the beans onto the tostada shells. Sprinkle the onions and feta on top. Add the sliced avocado. Sear your tuna in a separate pan with butter, salt and pepper, about 2 minutes on each side (according to instructions for your particular fish). While the tuna is searing, place the pan of tostadas in the broiler until they are warm and the cheese gets melty. Slice the tuna thinly and place on top of the rest of the ingredients. Add a sprinkle of thyme leaves (cilantro would be good here too) and drizzle with Cholula.
