Start by making the dressing. Place all the ingredients in a jar with a screw-top lid and shake vigorously to combine.

Carefully break the lettuce leaves into individual cups.

Toss the coleslaw with the fennel and half the mango. Drizzle over a couple of spoonfuls of the dressing. Spoon onto the lettuce cups and arrange mango slices on top.

Place the remaining dressing in a bowl.

Garnish with sesame seeds and fresh coriander. Serve immediately with the extra dressing on the side.
