Lobster… Is there any other word that instantaneously provides the same sense of opulence?

I think not.

Lobster is in its own category when it come to foods that make you feel like your sitting in the lap of luxury. It’s sweet and silky with the faint essence of the sea. A marvelous addition to any recipe from wood oven pizzas to rich pasta dishes. Lobster is always welcome.

Today we’re serving lobster piled high on crispy tostadas with spicy avocado slaw, fresh mango and avocado slices, pico di gallo, and queso fresco.

The key to making perfect Lobster Tostadas is to NOT overcook the lobster tails.

When cooking lobsters tails, I usually run a wooden skewer through the tail so that it doesn’t curl up while cooking. Then carefully drop it in boiling water and cook for 5-7 minutes. I usually stop after 5 minutes, just to be safe. Yet if you have extra large lobster tails, cook a little longer.

Then cool the lobster tails in an ice bath and cut them open with strong kitchen sheers.

Chop the tails into large chunks.

Next up, make a creamy spicy avocado slaw by tossing shaved cabbage with a puree of avocado, mayo, rice vinegar, honey, and serrano peppers.

Use the avocado slaw as the base of the tostadas, then top with fresh sliced avocado and sweet mango.

Lobster Tostadas

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes
Fresh Lobster Tostadas Recipe with avocado slaw, sweet and tangy mango slices, pico de gallo, and queso fresco.
Servings: 6 tostadas


For the Lobster Tostadas

  • 2 lobster tails
  • 6 tostada shells
  • 1 ripe mango peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo
  • 1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 1 ripe avocado peeled and sliced

For the Avocado Slaw


  • Place a large pot of water over high heat to boil. Insert a wooden skewer through each lobster tail, lengthwise, to help them stay straight while cooking. Once the water is boiling, lower the lobster tails into the pot. Boil for 5-7 minutes, until the shells are red. Then remove with tongs and place in a large bowl of ice water to cool.
  • Next make the avocado slaw: Peel the avocado and place half in the blender. Add the mayo, vinegar, honey, and serrano pepper. Puree until smooth. Pour the shredded cabbage in a large bowl. Then pour the avocado puree over the top. Toss and salt to taste.
  • Once the lobsters are cool, use a pair of kitchen shears to cut through the shells. Roughly chop the lobster meat.
  • To assemble: Lay the tostada shells out flat and top with a spoonful of spicy avocado slaw. Then top with fresh mango and avocado slices, followed by pico di gallo and crumbled queso fresco. Place the chopped lobster pieces on top of each tostada and serve immediately.

  2. These look amazing. I love lobster any way it’s served. Are those peppers real hot? I can’t eat really spicy foods. Or should I try another type of pepper?
