1. Preheat gas grill to high.

2. Make the dressing: Combine all dressing ingredients (except oil) in a blender and blend until smooth. While blender is running, remove lid and pour in oil in a steady stream.

3. Continue blending for several seconds, then remove and set aside.

4. Prepare the shrimp: Rinse shrimp and pat dry with a papertowel. Add about 1/3 cup of dressing and toss to coat. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes. String onto wooden or metal skewars for grilling. Grill over high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill, let cool, them remove from skewars.

5. In a large bowl, combine mango, avocado and grilled shrimp. Add dressing to taste; toss lightly and serve.
