Holy ingredient list – Grilled fish tostada salad

Um yeah, check out this list of ingredients:

  • 4 each 6 ounces Fresh Salmon (or fresh fish of your choice) Fillets
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 12 ounces finely shredded cheese (Mexican blend)
  • 6 cups spring mix of lettuce, washed, dried and torn
  • 1/2 cup Citrus Vinaigrette (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels
  • 4 ounces sliced roasted peppers (red, yellow or poblano)
  • 8 ounces Tomato Salsa (see recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup Chimichurri Sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 ripe avocado, quartered and cut into fan
  • CITRUS VINAIGRETTE: 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • CHIMICHURRI SAUCE: 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bunch (1 1/2 ounces) flat-leaf parsley, stemmed and minced
  • 1/2 bunch (1/2 ounce) cilantro, stemmed and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Scallion tops, thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • TOMATO SALSA: 1 1/2 pounds plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 fresh jalapeno (about 2 teaspoons), stemmed and finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning blend
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Yep, that’s what you need to make this:

Now admittedly, it does look good. But that ingredient list seems excessive is insane. And if you actually look closer, some of those things are already prepared and you may have to make your own (like creole seasoning blend), adding to the ingredient list even more.

The recipe is from Food Channel (not Food Network) and says that it’s from the Bahama Breeze restaurant, so maybe this is one of those occasions where you’d be better off just ordering dinner instead of making it yourself, hehe. You ‘could’ just use salsa instead of making yours fresh, but there don’t seem to be too many other shortcuts to ‘really’ replicate this one.
