Dredge the shrimp in flour/pepper, then egg, last cornmeal. Fry until golden brown and delicious, about 4 minutes. Drain and season with salt and pepper.
On a plate, place a small amount of the salad in the middle. Surround the salad with the sauce and place 5 shrimp leaning against the salad.
In a non-reactive saute pan coated lightly with oil, saute jalapenos, garlic, and ginger until brown, about 4 minutes. Add sugar and deglaze with vinegar and soy. Reduce by 50 percent and add tomatoes and butter. Check for seasoning.
In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, juice and oil. Add the zest and toss with the chayote, and scallions. Season with salt and pepper. This should be done 10 minutes before serving.
