Spicy Prawn Tostadas

Serves 4 Prep Time 2 hours   Cook Time 15 minutes   Rated:

There is a real culture of fresh Mexican food happening in Australia I am happy (relieved) to say. I LOVE fresh Mexican food, not the cheese and sour cream drenched food that Aussies have been forced to think of as Mexican for generations but the herbed, spicy, sweet, smoky freshness of real Mexican food. YAY. Vibrant and tasty and fish tacos are definitely making a splash on menu’s across the country. This is not a fish taco (you will have to go get my Tenina’s America book for a recipe for those) but this is akin to it, a prawn tostada, (tostada is a crunchy fried tortilla essentially, topped with yummy stuff).

So if you haven’t ventured into fresh Mexican cuisine yet, this is the perfect place to begin. Enjoy.
