For shrimp:

1 pound large shrimp, deveined and shelled

1 t salt

1/2 t red pepper flakes

several bay leaves

1 whole lemon, halved and juiced into water

Bring a sauce pan of water to a boil. Add salt, red pepper flakes, bay leaves and lemon. Add shrimp and cook until just firm to the touch. Strain off water and cool. Cut each shrimp into three pieces.

For salad mix:

Combine all ingredients, except mint in a large bowl and toss to combine. At this point, the mix will hold for a couple of days in the refrigerator, if you like. For service, add fresh mint (your call, I like it minty), a spritz of salt and pepper, diced shrimp and just enough mango ginger dressing to moisten. Mound mix into Romaine “boats” and garnish with additional chopped cilantro, chopped peanuts and black sesame seeds. Provide lime wedges and additional ramekins of dressing.

    1. Happy to share. Thanks for the reply. Another reader served her version in an avocado halve and garnished with fried wontons. Sounds great. Let me know how they turn out.
