This was just so-so for us. We followed the recipe exactly. It was a bit difficult to eat as a tostada, as others have posted. It looks impressive plated that way, though. We had seconds & ate them taco-style, which was much easier. We love fish tacos & have been blown away by some CL recipes, so we expect a lot. This wasn't bad, but it wasn't fabulous & we've had other CL fish taco recipes that were better. We like all the ingredients, but the finished product just wasn't as flavorful as we had hoped.
Tilapia Tostadas with Roasted Corn Relish
These crisp tostadas have all the appeal of fish tacos, but the flat shape allows you to pile toppings high. Although we broil corn tortillas for the base, substitute flour tortillas, or use prepared shells, if you prefer.
