Shrimp Tostadas

Shrimp Tostadas

Date: July 11, 2013


Modifications:  None, but we did fry the corn tortillas for the tostadas.

Time to table: Most prep was the night before, maybe 15 minutes that day.

Servings: 4 adults

Erin: Dislike

Ben: Dislike

Notes: This was a bust. The shrimp mixture was fine (although nothing special or particularly flavorful) but the tortillas fried just did not work well and were super tough so it was really hard to eat. While I like the DALS blog overall, none of the meals we’ve made from there have been winners. Should clearly just stick with my faves! We made the kids quesadillas with the mixture instead and neither ate it very well although I thought their meal was much better than ours. Pass on this one!

    Hahahaha we made these too and hated them! I mean, they were edible but that’s the most praise I can give them. Totally agree about DALS blog. I love how they write and think they are smart and funny, but I can’t think of one meal I made from them that I love. Maybe the Stromboli but that’s a pretty generic recipe.

    Just looked if I ever put these on “my blog” and I did and I acted like I didn’t hate them. The memory is worse than the meal actually was, maybe. Either way, gross.

    I think I saw them on your blog… and then decided maybe they’d be ok – false advertising!!! 🙂 haha

    It was! Sorrrry. I feel like I hate to admit defeat with new recipes. But with some time to reflect I can say they sucked. I actually thought the filling was ok, like by itself as a salad, but the combo of hot tortilla and cold shrimp … Yuck. If it was warm with cheese then I think it’d be better.
