Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season tilapia with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the fish, in batches if needed, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. The fish is ready when it flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, flake fish into pieces with a fork.

To serve, spread some warm refried beans over the tostada shells. Top with fish, green onions, lettuce, avocado and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges, sour cream and salsa on the side.
