We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists?

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts.

While today is National Taco Day, we’ve decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it’s not a taco, it’s a tostada, but it’s just as delicious whether it’s in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit for your family!

The first time I made this dish for my family, I was shocked at the reaction. My youngest, who swears she doesn’t like seafood, ate more shrimp than I knew her tiny body could handle. My oldest kept talking about the “explosion of flavors” in her mouth. It was as though she had just left one of those fancy cooking shows. I’m pretty sure my husband ate at least 6 and was still asking for more. So when you find a recipe like this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe, you have to make it often and share it with everyone.

Looking for a family friendly dish packed with flavor? This lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is exactly what your tastebuds have been waiting for.

Lime and Cilantro Shrimp Tostadas

The perfect flavor combination of lime, cilantro and fresh shrimp, all on top of a corn tostada.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mexican

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 pkg corn tostadas

Shrimp Marinade

  • 3 limes juiced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • lime zest
  • salt

Slaw

  • 2 cups cabbage shredded
  • ¼ red onion chopped thin
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 haas avocado cubed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt
  • lime zest
  • 1 tbsp paprika

Instructions

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the shrimp marinade. Add shrimp and mix until shrimp is fully covered. Cover bowl and marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine all slaw ingredients in another bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  • In a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • Preheat pan or grill on medium heat. Grill shrimp until pink and fully cooked.
  • Place tostada on plate. Top with slaw, 3-4 shrimp, drizzle sauce and top with chopped cilantro.

So you may be wondering why we chose shrimp. Well, up until a few weeks ago, I was a pescatarian. I had given up meat for over two years and shrimp was one of those ingredients that we tried to fit into meals at least twice a month.So aside from our favorite dijon shrimp scampi recipe, this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada is at the top of our family’s request list.

It makes a great family dinner because it’s super quick to make and gives everyone the option of building their own tostada. My kids love to “cook” and build their own meals. So you can set out the tostadas, the slaw, the shrimp and the sauce and allow them to make their own. I also put out some sliced lime wedges because my family likes theirs extra sour.

If you are a vegetarian, I also recommend trying our lentil taco recipe. The avocado and salsa fresca is so yummy! It’s every bit of happiness in your mouth, without the meat and perfect for National Taco Day, or any day, really.

What are your plans for National Taco Day? Comment below and let us know!

This incredible lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is packed with flavor, kid friendly and perfect for any day of the year!

XOXO
