Salmon Tostadas: The (20-Minute) Fast-Breaking Meal

These delicious salmon tostadas are so easy to make! Low in carbohydrates, high in healthy fats & moderate protein, making them the perfect fast-breaking meal. I love Mexican food & its bold flavors, so naturally I had to give it a twist to fit my fasting lifestyle. I take on more aggressive fasts during my follicular phase to kick off autophagy and ketosis, so meals that keep glucose and insulin low are my go-to. My family loves a good taco, but these tostadas have become an instant hit in my home! 

INGREDIENTS (yields for 2 tostadas) 

  • 8oz raw salmon (I like the one from @seatopia) 
  • Tortillas (I used Siete Almond Tortillas)
  • 1 1/2 avocado
  • pickled shallots
  • garlic powder
  • nion powder
  • Himalayan salt & pepper
  • feta cheese (optional)
  • red pepper flakes 


  • Start off by preheating your oven at 350°F and then bake your tortillas 15-20min. 
  • Then use your avocado to make an avocado mash, which we're going to use to coat the tortilla. 
  • Get your pickled shallots ready and your salmon. 
  • Season your salmon with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt & pepper to taste. 
  • Cook in the air fryer for 10 min at 400°F. 
  • Now start building your tostada. Start with the avocado mash, add the cooked salmon, feta cheese, shallots and sprinkle the red pepper flakes for a little flavor. 
  • Here you have the perfect fast-breaker meal!
