You know what goes hand in hand with pregnancy? (Aside from back aches, headaches, insomnia, constantly needing to pee, and a few other embarrassing things I won’t even mention?)

Snacking.

I am a snacking machine! For the most part I’ve been craving cheese and more cheese, but occasionally healthy things sneak in for snack time too. I’ve been a big fan of avocado and tomatoes as well as cheese. Combined with some perfectly cooked shrimp on top of a crunchy tostada, and you have one happy and satisfied pregnant lady here!

Easy Shrimp and Avocado Tostadas

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 tostadas

Ingredients

  • 4 crunchy tostada shells
  • 12-16 large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and tails removed
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning (Cajun seasoning or chili powder would work too!)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small bell pepper, diced
  • 2 scallions, diced
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta (or queso fresco or cojita cheese)

Instructions

  1. Season the shrimp with the taco seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a large pan, and cook the shrimp about 2-3 minutes per side over high heat, or until fully cooked. Set aside.
  2. Mash the avocado in a small bowl and mix with the lime juice.
  3. To arrange the tostadas, spread 1/4 of the avocado onto each tostada, and season with a pinch of salt & pepper. Top each tostada with 3-4 shrimp, halved tomatoes, diced bell peppers, diced scallions, and feta cheese. Squeeze extra lime juice over the tostadas, if desired. Serve immediately
