Crab and Quinoa Ceviche Tostadas

Aguachile, ceviche and seafood cocktails are the most famous seafood dishes served on the beaches of Mexico. What they all have in common is that the shellfish used is cooked in lemon.

I created this crab and quinoa ceviche tostada recipe. I enjoy my favorite seafood flavors with a crunch and tons of fiber from the quinoa, and this recipe has both.
