Black Bean and Salmon Tostadas

  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 25m

4 servings, 2 tostadas each

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.


  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 1 6- to 7-ounce can boneless, skinless wild Alaskan salmon, drained
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapeños, plus 2 tablespoons pickling juice from the jar, divided
  • 2 cups coleslaw mix (see Tip) or shredded cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons prepared salsa
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Lime wedges (optional)


Position racks in upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 375 degrees F.

Coat the tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. Place on 2 baking sheets. Bake, turning once, until light brown, 12 to 14 minutes.

Combine the salmon, avocado and jalapeños in a bowl. Combine the cabbage, cilantro and the pickling juice in another bowl. Process the black beans, sour cream, salsa and scallions in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high until hot, about 2 minutes.

To assemble the tostadas, spread each tortilla with some bean mixture and some salmon mixture and top with the cabbage salad. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Tip: &lt;br&gt;Look for convenient pre-shredded cabbage-and-carrot &amp;#8220;coleslaw mix&amp;#8221; near other prepared vegetables in the produce section of the supermarket. <br><br>Serve with brown rice cooked with diced tomatoes and onions or salsa.
