Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas 🍤 Mexican style… I remember walking into my grandparent’s kitchen every Sunday and there was my Papito (grandfather) in his undershirt, cooking… most of the time it was some sort of seafood! Ceviche was in the rotation very often. He was great cook and a lover of food!
I have taken some creative liberties with my ceviche and you know what? That’s what food is all about to me… making something your own.

Why You’ll Love Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas

These shrimp ceviche tostadas are extremely delicious. They are so fresh, spicy and perfect. It’s super easy to make and prepare ahead of time (the longer you let it sit, the better). The salsa macha adds an additional touch of spicy and crunchiness and it enhances the flavor even more, because it also adds a nutty taste.

How To Prepare Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas

🥒 First, chop up the cucumber, tomato, shallot, scallions and Serranos into pretty small pieces.

🦐 Secondly, chop the shrimp up into desired size. I like pieces about 1/2 inch.

🍋 Add shrimp, shallots and Serranos to a bowl. Then, add salt, pepper, lime and lemon. Let it cure for 20 minutes in the fridge.

🍅 Add in the tomatoes, cucumber, scallions and scallions to the bowl.

🌶 Add in the Huichol and Maggi. Then, add more lemon if desired.

🌟 Let it sit 20-30 minutes. The longer the better!

🍤 Lastly, add mayo to your tostadas, top with ceviche, salsa macha and lime!

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use white fish instead of shrimp.
  2. If you aren’t a huge fan of spicy, you can leave the Serrano out, and adjust the amount of hot sauce to your desired level of heat.
  3. If you can’t find Huichol, you can use your hot sauce of choice.
  4. You can use regular mayonnaise instead of Japanese.
  5. You can use any soy sauce of your choice instead of Maggi.
  6. You can use any peppers of your choice instead of Serrano.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Chop everything pretty small, so you get a bit of everything in every bite.
