WHAT TO SERVE WITH TOSTADAS
You can serve this meal with the following side dishes, but like tacos, these are pretty filling and do not necessarily need a side dish to make a meal.
  • rice (brown or white)
  • lettuce
  • side salad
  • baked fries
  • Spanish rice
  • soup
  • fresh-cut veggies
These do not freeze well or keep more than a few hours. You can however prepare the veggies and shrimp ahead of time.
