Tilapia Tostadas

February 26, 2010

Hola amigos! I was in Mexico a couple of weeks ago, and we had some delicious fish tacos at one of the resort’s restaurants. Back home in the cold winter weather, I found this recipe in a Cooking Light’s August 2009 issue. The cornmeal-coated tilapia is delicious and certainly more healthy than the restaurant version.


  • The first time I made this, I broiled the tortillas as directed in the recipe. It worked fine, but they were hard to eat. The next time, I brushed them with oil and warmed them in a pan on the stove; they were easier to eat this way.
  • My grocery store didn’t have angel hair slaw, so I used regular.
  • My avocado was brown and mushy when I cut it open, so I had to go without. Boo!
  • I used defrosted frozen corn.

I don’t have any photos of the fish tacos, but here are a few from the trip.

Have a fruity drink!

Have another fruity drink!

There was no shortage of fancy desserts

I need a chocolate fountain at home!

Mayan ruins at Coba. A few trips up and down will work off some calories!


  1. That’s a cruel thing to do… posting photos of warm, sunny weather, beaches… 🙂 What a great looking dish AND scenery! How lucky – I’m sure you enjoyed yourself and by the looks of it – enjoyed a colorful drink or two. Now I’m going to have to try my hand at tilapia!

  2. Hola! Love these photos – it looks like it was a fun trip. I want one of those fruity drinks – they look delicious!!!

  3. What a great trip! I think I love the fruity drinks best of all – but the fish tacos certainly come in a close second!

  4. I’ve never had fish tacos-and I’ve never had tilapia, but I’ve always wanted to try it!

    Love your pictures…I, too, could use a chocolate fountain at home. On second thought, maybe not.:/

    I’m so glad you had such a great trip!!!!

  5. Looks like a fun trip! It’s been years since I visited Mexico, but I remember the breaded fish tacos being delicious. It’s great you found a healthier version.

  6. I love you trip photos–how fun! Those drinks look so yummy, and the desserts are fabulous.

  7. The trip looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing the photos, they are a welcome sight here as I gaze out the window with snow still present…dreaming, dreaming….
