This is probably the easiest dish you will ever make next to a PB & J.
Halve one ripe papaya lengthwise and remove seeds.
Cut little tiny slice off the "bottom" so it will sit flat.
Fill with good quality bay shrimp. (About 1/4  - 1/3  lb per person depending on size of papaya and whether it is an appetizer or main dish).
Top with bottled Russian dressing - amount to your discretion.  You can always pass more around if needed.
Crush and sprinkle dried mint on top.
Serve with a wedge of lime to be added if wanted.
This makes a nice appetizer or luncheon dish.

Substitute Russian dressing with Raspberry vinaigrette.
Substitute Russian dressing with Chinese Chicken Salad dressing (recipe was on my last show) and add chopped candied ginger.
