FOR TOPPING
MAKING
1. Place sliced red cabbage in a colander and sprinkle with kosher salt. Toss and massage lightly to distribute salt evenly. Let stand for 20 minutes. This will season the cabbage, as well as make it slightly softer and even sweeter.
2. Make the dressing by whisking the rice vinegar, olive oil and honey together in a bowl. Set aside.

FOR EDAMAME PUREE
MAKING

2. In a food processor, add the coarsely chopped garlic and edamame, along with all of the broth. Pulse until nicely pureed, and then add softened cream cheese and wasabi paste.

FOR TILAPIA FILETS
MAKING
1. Season both sides of the tilapia filets lightly with salt and pepper.
2. In a large skillet, add a little olive oil and place over high heat. Add the tilapia, but work in batches, as to not overcrowd the pan. Sauté for 3 minutes on the first side, then 2 minutes on the second side.
3. Remove to a plate or tray and keep warm with aluminum foil until all the batches are done.

FINALIZING
4. Arrange the tostadas on individual plates and place some edamame puree on top of each one. Top with tilapia filets and toss the softened cabbage with the dressing and place a nice mound on top of each of the filets.

SERVING
5. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges. To eat, squeeze fresh lime juice on top and break the tostada apart with a fork. Eat everything with a fork, or use your fingers and enjoy as fancy nachos!
