Mango Mandarin Sesame Shrimp Salad

This is a nice Asian style salad with lots of flavor.  If you use precooked shrimp it can come together in less than 30 minutes.  This recipe makes great dinner salads.

  • 1½-2 pounds uncooked shrimp shelled and deveined, tail-on is okay)
  • 8 cups chopped romaine or green leaf lettuce
  • 1 avocado, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1 large mango, diced
  • ½ cup mandarin oranges
  • 1c. snow peas, chopped
  • ⅓ cup shelled edamame
  • ¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • sesame seeds, for topping (optional)
  • Combine all ingredients except shrimp.  Mix marindae/dressing and combine half of it with the shrimp.  Let sit for 10-15 minutes.  Saute shrimp and add to salad using the remainder of the dressing/marinade with the salads.
  • ½ cup oil (vegetable, canola, or peanut work well)
  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (I use low sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger (more to taste)
