    Additional Info

    You can either skewer the shrimp before grilling or add each one to the grill individually. The time it takes to do either step is about the same. If you plan to wrap the ingredients into a tortilla versus topping the tostada shells, make sure to remove the tails. The salsa is a delicious stand-alone appetizer as well as a fresh side for grilled fish, chicken breasts, or pork tenderloin.
