These tostadas are delicious, combining the smoky flavour of mackerel and chipotle, lightened with a vibrant, citrusy tomato salsa and finished with a slice of creamy avocado and a sprinkling of deep-fried shallots.
If you can make a corn tortilla, says Tommi Miers, you can make tacos, tostadas, tacquitos, with their citrussy-fresh fillings and their hot salsas. Learn to char your chillies, grill your tomatoes, toast your garlic, and pat out your own corn tortillas like (as one Mexican proverb has it) ‘a butterfly’. Join Tommi at the chic Miele Gallery to make and eat classic Mexican street food as they do in the markets of Mexico.
Variation: This is also delicious with any type of smoked fish.
