Ingredients

  • 1 pound (raw) large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails intact, if desired)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 teaspoons blackened-fish rub or Cajun seasoning
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 cups packed torn Boston or Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 1 diced peeled avocado
  • 1 diced peeled mango
  • 3 tablespoons salsa or picante sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1. Prepare grill or broiler, or have a ridged grill pan ready to preheat. Combine shrimp and bell pepper chunks in a medium bowl. Add fish rub or Cajun seasoning; toss to coat lightly. Thread shrimp and bell pepper (alternately) on metal or bamboo skewers (the latter presoaked in water); coat with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Arrange lettuce, avocado, and mango on 4 large plates. Combine salsa, chutney, and lime juice; mix well. (Salads and dressing can be prepared up to 2 hours before serving; chill separately.)
  3. 3. Put shrimp skewers on medium-hot grill, under broiler 4 inches from heat, or in grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook 3-4 minutes per side or until shrimp are opaque. Remove shrimp and peppers from skewers; arrange over salads. Drizzle salsa mixture over salads; top with cilantro, if desired.
