Shrimp Tostada

AuthorDanny EckesCategory, DifficultyBeginner

This quick and easy recipe can feed 2-3 people. Make it a fusion between great music, good food, and tasty beer. Takes about 30 minutes to make. Turn on any album by Tedeschi Trucks. I'm partial to "Live from the Fox Oakland" because I was there for the recording. Pop open an El Sully and rock your heart out. Let me know how it turns out!
