post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Welcome, here is a good one:
My Tweeks follow, originally posted in Epicurious Swap by joannie--

Mango, Avocado and Shrimp (large) Salad

2 x ripe mangos, diced
2 x ripe avocados, diced
1 x small romaine lettuce, washed and torn into small pieces
1 x TBL chopped fresh coriander
1 LB cleaned, precooked large shrimp defrosted
1 x good cup cooked rice or small pasta (I use orzo ie rice shaped pasta)

2 x TBL fresh lemon juice
2 x cloves garlic minced (depends on strength
of garlic, use less if one clove is quite strong)
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and
grated or minced
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp borrie (turmeric)
2 tsp sugar

Layer well washed and dried lettuce on large platter layer Avo then pasta then mango and lastly shrimp. Sprinkle well mixed dressing over the entire salad.

Joanie's notes:
I found that in fact this is nicer if the prawns and mango are first put into a plastic bag with the dressing for a couple of hours and then spread in the layers. Serve sprinkled with coriander and fresh, crisp baguette.

my tweeks--
tripled the recipe, Made double (6X) dressing and marinated raw shrimp in some of that for about an hour. Cooked shrimp under broiler in cast iron pan, stirring several times,about 4 minutes (big shrimp). Added hot shrimp, with juices and a bit more dressing, to hot orzo, stirred to cool and then refrigerated for a couple of hours. Cut avocado in wedges and sprinkled with lime juice.
Used frozen mango chunks, thawed slightly--
Mixed shrimp mixture, romaine, cilantro, and mango, and rest of dressing, put in a pretty big bowl lined with romaine. Arranged avocado around edge.
The slightly frozen mango kept it cool for trip over.
It looked pretty if I do say so myself and was the first thing all gone!
Thanks joannie!! Hope you don't think I tweaked too much?
