Shrimp and Zucchini TostadasPosted by in Food
Shrimp and Zucchini Tostadas seemed like an easy dish to make (“doing” Martha does not have to always be time-consuming and overwhelming – sometimes just using nice ingredients in a simply elegant way is truly Martha). I only had one tortilla in the house, so I decided to use pitas. I had a pack of 4 and set them out on the counter to defrost. When I came back, 2 were gone and there was a dog with a suspiciously full tummy. So I made two on pitas and cut my lone tortilla in half and made two with that. This dish is amazingly easy. You just saute up some garlic and zucchini. Stick the tortillas in the oven with cheese on them. Saute the shrimp and dump the shrimp and zucchini on top of the tortillas. Add some scallions and serve with sour cream (I also served with sliced avocado). These were AMAZING. And I don’t know why they were so good, but they were. The flavors went together perfectly. I’m going to make this dish again for sure.

I love this blog! It’s like the television show “Whatever, Martha” without the pretentious snobbery of Martha’s Paris-Hilton-wannabe daughter!
(Admittedly I’ve never seen the show–no cable TV in this house–but I saw enough from the clips when Alexis appeared on Martha’s show)
I look forward to reading your posts, fellow blogathoner, and my wife is happy to have found a kindred spirit. 😉
Thanks so much! I think that show is funny – what’s interesting is it was Martha’s idea and she produces it. I do find Alexis a bit scary – so very thin and so very certain about many things.
I think it’s a brilliant move on Martha’s part. There are lots of people who love to hate Martha—and now they’re watching her show indirectly through her daughter. Smooth move, I say.
The woman knows how to make money.
This is also on my list to make this month! I’m so happy I discovered your blog… you’re one step ahead of my meal plans! I’m bookmarking you for future visits! Thanks!
Let me know if you like it if you make it. I’m going to make this again soon – it was sooooo good!
Oh, I’m definitely making it. This recipe is my next victim for my new series, “How to Ignore a Recipe.”
