Tilapia Tostadas

First off, I have to give credit to my wonderful husband for this dinner.  I wanted to workout tonight, so he made dinner.  He didn't follow the exact recipe below because I was using my computer to do my 30 day shred workout. I told him all of the ingredients and he did a darn good job combining them.  The tostadas were amazing but the corn salsa on top was the bomb diggity! We used panko crumbs instead of cornmeal.  We also used tomatoes instead of red peppers and onions. We topped it off with a sprinkle of cheese on top of the tostada when it was done.  The recipe is from Cooking Light.  Enjoy!


  • 1/2  cup  reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4  cup  green salsa
  • Cooking spray
  • 1  cup  yellow corn kernels
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt, divided
  • 1  cup  diced peeled avocado
  • 2  teaspoons  fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2  pounds  tilapia fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3  cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil, divided
  • 8  (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 1  cup  packaged angel hair slaw
  • Lime wedges (optional)


1. Combine sour cream and salsa.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add corn, bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to pan; sauté 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove mixture from pan; wipe pan clean with paper towels. Combine avocado and juice; toss gently. Stir avocado mixture into corn mixture.
3. Preheat broiler.
4. Sprinkle fish evenly with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Place cornmeal in a shallow dish; dredge fish in cornmeal. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add half of fish to pan; cook 3 minutes. Carefully turn fish over; cook 2 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and fish.
5. Coat both sides of tortillas with cooking spray. Arrange tortillas in a single layer on baking sheets; broil 2 minutes on each side or until crisp. Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates. Arrange 2 tablespoons slaw on each tortilla. Divide fish evenly among tortillas; top each serving with about 3 tablespoons corn relish and about 1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream mixture. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
