The Most Delicious Tilapia Tostadas (Gluten-Free / Grain-Free / Dairy-Free)
Tilapia can get a bad rap and for good reason, it’s generalized as an unsustainably farm-raised fish that has a much lower nutrient profile compared to wild-caught sustainably sourced fish. However, the plus side to tilapia is that it can be a reasonably priced fish that is super lean and high in protein.
Being that I strive to find the best of all things available on the market to share, I recently found a tilapia from Regal Springs that checks all the boxes. You can find it at Costco under the Kirkland brand at the following locations: Store Locator in the fish section of the meat department. Their tilapia is the most sustainably sourced tilapia that I’ve found to date -- it’s also raised on freshwater lakes, free from antibiotics, growth hormones as well as chemicals. If you’re looking for a better tilapia option with really good, lean protein this is definitely the one.
In honor of finding these delicious tilapia fillets, I’m sharing my amazing tostada recipe that’s gluten-free / grain-free and dairy-free.
Ingredients: (Makes 4 Tostadas)
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees for the tilapia.
Cook the sweet potatoes in a pan with avocado oil on medium heat with sea salt, ground pepper plus red pepper flakes. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat or to desired crispness (I like mine a little crispy so tend to go a little longer). Set aside when finished.
The tilapia, cooked to flaky perfection with sriracha seasoning, sea salt, pepper, fresh squeezed lime juice while wrapped in parchment paper and cooked for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
For the tostada, I used siete foods grain-free cassava flour tortillas made crispy by using avocado oil cooked in a pan over medium heat for about 90 seconds each side.
Black Beans cooked over low heat with dairy-free nut cheese.
Roughly chop the cilantro and slice the avocado for garnish.
Finish by layering the black beans, sweet potatoes, tilapia, avocado, cilantro, squeeze lime over the top and enjoy!
