I have to admit I was skeptical when I read this receipe. nothing about Salmon and Refried beans in the same dish sounded that great to me. However, this was Fabulous. I did change a few small things because my maid doesn't like anything spicy. First I used fresh salmon. I steamed it and shredded it with a fork. Then I shredded the cabbage (about 1 1/2 cups) and some carrots(about 1/2 cup) and added about 1/2 cup of chopped fresh cilantro. I then drizzled the cabbage/carrot/cilantro mixture with about 1 TBS of Olive oil, 1 TBS of vinegar (I used rice vinegar), and added 1 tsp sugar along with a dash of salt and pepper. I spread the heated tostados with the plain refried beans, topped with shredded salmon, cabbage mixture, and chopped avacodo. The maid loved her not-spicy tostado and I added Picante sauce to the top of mine....it was fabulous!
Oh and by leaving out the sour cream I saved myself some calories...I never even missed it....I actually FORGOT when I was preparing the receipe, but the extra fat wasn't missed a bit.
P.S. It was hard to eat only one.
