Add 5 shrimp per skewer (presoak the skewers for 30 minutes if using an outdoor grill). Spray a grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium. Add shrimp skewers in an even layer so they are not touching. Cook 2-3 minutes per side, or until shrimp are pink. Remove from grill and set aside.

Heat refried beans in a medium pan. Spread a thin layer of refried beans over each tostada shell. Add a layer of lettuce and top with a spoonful of salsa verde and guacamole. Sprinkle with cheese. Lay two shrimp skewers on top of each tostada.
