Chile Lime Shrimp Tostada Bites

Whether you’re serving them for a crowd-pleasing appetizer or making a lunch out of them all by yourself (yes, I may have done exactly that) this is something that I could very happily eat every day.

Like all of the mouth-watering recipes and boards in my friend Maegan‘s new cookbook, Spectacular Spreads, these shrimp bites are something that will disappear lightning-fast anytime you make them.

When I spied this parfait breakfast board in Maegan’s first cookbook Beautiful Boards a couple of years ago, I immediately put it on my meal plan. What’s not to love about yogurt parfaits with loads of fun toppings?!

Maegan’s cookbooks have delivered so many tasty foods to our table. You’ll want to add this one to your wishlist too.

Not a fan of shrimp? While these bites might not be perfect for you, don’t let that stop you from diving into the Spectacular Spreads cookbook.

There are endless options with an abundance of delicious recipes. Whether you are a board-maker or not, there are breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacking, and dessert options waiting for you in this gorgeous book.

But if you do like shrimp? You’re very likely to LOVE these shrimp bites. And if you’re more likely to reach for low-carb options, try Maegan’s recommendation to serve these Shrimp Bites on cucumber slices. That sounds delicious too.

For a few more fantastic shrimp recipe favorites, you’ll want to save the recipes for The Best Ever Shrimp Cocktail, Kielbasa and Shrimp Fried Rice, and Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp.

Irresistible Shrimp Bites with Avocados and crunchy tortilla chips

Shrimp Tostada Bites

  1. Place the shrimp in a small bowl and sprinkle generously with the spice mix. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Heat the olive in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes. Flip the shrimp, or stir, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes until shrimp are opaque and slightly pink. Immediately remove from the heat and transfer to a plate. Squeeze lime over the shrimp.
  3. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of guacamole onto each tortilla chip. Top each chip with a shrimp and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with additional lime wedges, if desired.

Shrimp and Avocado

Shrimp + Avocado is a delicious combination. Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp with Avocado Sauce has been a family favorite ever since my sister introduced us that the awesome avocado cream sauce.

This Shrimp Chopped Salad included a hearty portion of avocado chunks. There are so many terrific flavors mixed into this salad, it doesn’t even need salad dressing to pull it together.
