Fish Tostadas with Ranch-Feta Slaw...Featuring Outer Aisle Jalapeño Cauliflower Sandwich Thins #healthy2021 #cauliflowerthins #outeraisle #eatmorefish

By now, y'all know how much I love cauliflower sandwich thins and pizza crusts. I'm eating fewer carbs these days -- a key reason for my recent loss of nearly 50 pounds! I use their versatile, lower carb sandwich thins and pizza crusts to make everything from sandwiches...and more! Today? I'm using their lightly spicy Jalapeño sandwich thins as a sub for tortillas to make Fish Tostadas with Ranch-Feta Slaw. This flavorful cousin of traditional fish tacos has all the Big Flavors you want...with fewer carbs and less fat! My tostadas start with a base of toasted Outer Aisle jalapeño cauliflower thins that are spread with a simple avocado mash. Next is layer of spiced, pan-seared tilapia. Finally, each tostada is topped with a creamy-crunchy Ranch-feta slaw. Full of fun flavors and textures...but not excess calories = a winning scenario!

Fish Tostadas
with Ranch-Feta Slaw
Ingredients (makes TWO servings):

  • 12 ounces tilapia -- will yield 9 ounces cooked fish
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • Non-stick olive oil spray
  • 4 Outer Aisle Jalepeño cauliflower sandwich rounds -- thawed if frozen
  • 2/3 cup baby field green salad mix
For the slaw:
  • 1.5 cups angel hair cabbage slaw 
  • 1/2 cup chopped grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 TBS reduced-fat feta
  • 4 TBS fat-free Ranch dressing [NOTE: I use Walden Farms]
  • 1 TBS chunky salsa [NOTE: I use Pace Thick and Chunky]
  • 1/4 tsp salt-free chipotle seasoning [NOTE: I use Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle]
For the avocado mash:
  • 3 ounces avocado
  • 1 TBS chunky salsa 
  • 1/4 tsp. salt-free chipotle seasoning
Step 1: Make the slaw. Add the cabbage, tomatoes, scallions, reduced fat feta, Ranch dressing, salsa, and salt-free chipotle seasoning to a small mixing bowl. Stir to completely incorporate all ingredients. Cover and chill in the fridge until you're ready to assemble your tostadas.
Step 2: Make the avocado mash. Add the avocado, chunky salsa, and salt-free chipotle seasoning. Mash until the ingredients are combined into a chunky spread. Cover and refrigerate until you're ready to assemble the tostadas.
Step 3: Sear the tilapia. Spray a non-stick skillet with a small amount of the olive oil non-stick spray, then heat the skillet over med-high heat. Sprinkle the tilapia fillets lightly with the chili powder. Sear the tilapia fillets for 3-4 minutes. Spray the hot skillet with a bit more olive oil non-stick spray, then flip the tilapia fillets over to finish searing. Place the cooked tilapia on a plate and use a fork to break the fish into bite-size chunks.
Step 4: While the fish sears, heat your oven to 400℉. Toast the Outer Aisle cauliflower thins for 4-5 minutes per side, until golden brown and toasted. This step is vital to ensure your finished tostadas aren't soggy!
To assemble the tostadas, place two rounds on a plate. Evenly spread each toasted cauliflower thin with 1/4 of the avocado mash. Top the avocado with 1/4 of the cooked fish chunks. 
Step 5: Immediately before serving, spoon 2 TBS of the Ranch-feta slaw on top of the fish on each tostada. There will be slaw left; divide the remaining slaw in half. Place half of the field greens on each plate and top with the extra slaw. The plate is gorgeous to look at...and delicious to eat!
These flavorful fish tostadas are proof positive that healthy food can be incredibly fresh and delicious! The lightly spicy Outer Aisle Jalapeño cauliflower sandwich thins are a perfect base for these'll never miss traditional tortillas! The creamy avocado, seared and spiced tilapia, and flavorful crunchy slaw all combine for a perfect bite. Not a fish fan? You can easily use seared chopped shrimp instead. This recipe makes two servings...but the recipe is easily doubled or tripled to feed a larger crowd.
