Pickled jalapeños, cilantro and avocado perk up convenient canned salmon for a quick tostada topping. Skip store-bought and make your own crispy shells in the oven. Serve with: Brown rice cooked with diced tomatoes and onions or salsa.

"AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! We had to sprinkle a little salt and drizzle more lime juice on the top. Definitely a keeper. "

Great but made some changes

Made a few changes. We do not like seafood at all in our household, so I used canned chicken instead. Another change that I made was instead of using cabbage I used brocolli slaw. Loved the texture and extra flavor that the brocolli slaw added. I served this with brown rice seasoned with some Rotelle, chili powder, and lime juice. We liked this so much I was requested by the family to make it two nights in a row. I

Healthy, quick, easy, delicious
Really impressed.

I was really impressed with this recipe! I'm not a big fan of fish, but have been looking at ways to incorporate more omega-3s into our diet. This was an easy, unusual (at least for me) recipe that fit the bill, and it was tasty as heck. I'm adding it to the normal rotation!

healthy, flavorful, quick

I don't know if it was just the can if salmon I used but there were hundreds of tiny bones (some of them really big) in the salmon and it made the process of preparing this meal and eating it incredibly grotesque. I still get nauseous whenever I think about it.

you can just crush the bones

you can just crush the bones in canned salmon. just take a spoon and flatten the bones, and you won't even notice them.


These were AWESOME. Substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and it worked perfectly. Very filling and so healthy! Will definitely make these again.


These were delicious! i made a batch of the salmon (fresh, seasoned, and broiled) along with a batch of seasoned shrimp! love all of the flavors! a definite family fav!

flavorful, spicy
