Crunchy gluten-free bread crumbs outshine the regular variety in this recipe. Use your favorite bottled, gluten-free dressing with a sweet overtone (such as Annie’s papaya–poppy seed dressing) for the salad. To save time, you can buy prepeeled raw shrimp, though it does cost more.

Directions
  1. Mix together beans, mango, scallions, cilantro, and salad dressing. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together bread crumbs, coconut, and salt. Put beaten egg whites in a separate small bowl. Dip each shrimp in egg white; then dredge in bread-crumb mixture. Set aside on a plate
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add oil. Add shrimp to pan in a single layer. Cook 3 minutes. Turn shrimp and cook 2–3 minutes, until opaque in the centers. Remove to a plate
  4. Spoon salad onto serving plates; top with shrimp. Serve with lime wedges.
