"Made some substitutions - I used a 2lb bag of frozen Whiting fillets, because that's what I had in my freezer - there was enough of the coating mix to coat all of the 9 fillets in this bag. Instead of mixing up the coleslaw recipe, I bought pre-made coleslaw from the deli counter - the kind that is chopped up real fine. I added corn, deleted avocado - simply because I had leftover corn in the fridge, and no avocado. I sprinkled a bit of lime juice on each one after it was assembled. I used white corn tortillas, and broiled them as stated, but I think in the future I will find a different way to 'crisp' them. This was my first try of any sort of fish taco dish. It has just been something I've avoided, not being a big fish eating fan. I loved it and will make them again!"

"My children and I absolutely loved the fish tostadas. We have never made anything like this and the flavors complemented each other. Definitely will make again!"

"One of our favorites! We tried it last time with Whole Grain Taco Shells in stead of a tostada shell. You couldn't fit as much filling into the shell but is was easier to eat."

"We really like this recipe! As usual after making these as directed, the next time I made these, I substituted fish sticks for the tilapia fillets, sprayed oil onto them, added a good dusting of chili powder, garlic salt, and pepper and baked them @ 425 degrees until crisp, about 7 minutes. Used pre-made tostadas instead of the corn tortillas as they are already made for you. I didn't have coleslaw mix, so I thinly sliced a half of a small head of cabbage. I didn't rinse my black beans as they were flavored with jalapeno peppers. This has been added to our once a month eats."

"Fast & easy-especially when you have ready-made tostada shells on hand! Might give it a try on regular corn tortillas."
