  3. Toss cooled shrimp in the dressing to coat, then fold in the cucumber, mango, and avocado. Season with the remaining teaspoon of salt and the pepper.
  4. Serve the shrimp salad in the lettuce leaves. Garnish with chives, mango slices, and more Fiery spice blend, if desired. Serve cold.
  5. Enjoy!
