Tostadas Campechanas de Mariscos (Seafood Tostadas)

At the beautifully abundant Mercado Negro in Ensenada, Baja California, the clams, mussels, oysters, shrimp and fish that are for sale each day are highly sought after by locals and chefs. Almost more common than street tacos served there are these tostadas, made in stands that sell towers of fresh, raw seafood tossed with squeezed lime juice and topped with a number of different housemade salsas.

  1. Step 1

    Ten minutes before you are ready to serve, whisk together lime juice, lime zest and salt in a large bowl until salt has dissolved. Add seafood, onion, radishes and chiles, and toss to combine and evenly coat. Let sit for 5 minutes before building the tostadas. 
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, arrange avocado on each of the tops of the tostadas. Add cilantro to the seafood mixture and toss to combine. Use a slotted spoon to pile the seafood over the avocado. Drizzle with salsa macha and serve.
