  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. For the vinaigrette: In a blender, puree all ingredients until liquid is smooth; cranberries will remain slightly chunky.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine the sweet potatoes with the reserved bacon fat. Add the chili powder, salt and pepper. Toss until coated.
  5. Spread potato mixture on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until tender. Reserve.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, potato mixture, vinaigrette, cilantro and reserved bacon. Toss until coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Place the romaine leaves on a serving platter. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the shrimp mixture onto the root end of each romaine leaf. Serve.
