  4. Using a medium bowl, toss shrimp with a tablespoon of oil, paprika and cumin to evenly coat. Season with salt and pepper. Using a large nonstick sauté pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and sauté until cooked through and center of shrimp is opaque, about 90 seconds per side, remove from heat.
  5. To assemble, spread tostada shells with avocado mash, top with sautéed shrimp and strawberry salsa. Serve with remaining lime cut into wedges and garnish with cilantro.
