Crunch meets soft and sour meets sweet in this meal that screams fun in the most delicious way. A tortilla is crisped up to make a messy-but-perfect tostada base. We give you a bit of a cheat on the ceviche; the shrimp is poached first before it's cured. But you still get that wonderful acid hit with a marinade of jalapeño and tomato. Avocado brings a creamy rich base, and, just for balance, we add in some mango, giving it a fruity flourish.
Tip: Get your best zest: use the small holes of the grater, and press into it until the colored skin comes off. Zest as little of the white beneath as possible: the white is called pith, and is quite bitter.
