Season the vegetables generously with salt and pepper [some of it will fall off]. For more flavors, marinate the vegetables at room temperature for 20 minutes to an hour in olive oil, vinegar, garlic, herbs, and spices.

preparation

1.  To make the dressing: Using a mortar and pestle or blender, crush the garlic and chile with the sugar. Add the cilantro and mint, grinding them until they create a paste. Add the remaining dressing ingredients, plus 2 tablespoons water, and mix well.

2.  Lightly brush or spray the shrimp with the oil. Grill over Direct High heat until the shrimp are firm to the touch and just turning opaque in the center, 2 to 4 minutes, turning once.

3.  In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, mango, and bean sprouts. Stir the dressing and add enough of it to lightly coat the lettuce leaves [you may not need all of the dressing]. Spoon the salad onto individual plates and garnish with grilled shrimp. Serve immediately.
