  • 2-3 tablespoons fish sauce, or use soy sauce if necessary
  • 1-2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small hot chili, such as serrano, seeded, minced
  • 1 pound shrimp, (25 to 30 per pound)
  • 2 cups greens

Combine green onions, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, garlic, and chile in a bowl. Mix in shredded mango. Chill while preparing shrimp.

Shell and devein shrimp and rinse well; divide into 4 portions.

Thread 1 portion onto a slender metal skewer. Run a second skewer through shrimp 1/2 to 1 inch from the first skewer, to keep them flat. Repeat with remaining shrimp. Grill shrimp on a medium hot grill, covered, for about 3 minutes on each side, or until opaque but still a bit moist in the center of thickest parts.

Place greens on a platter; mound mango mixture onto the greens using a slotted spoon. Place shrimp over the mango salad and garnish with lime slices, if desired.
