Coconut Curry Shrimp Cakes with Papaya-Lime Sauce

Karry Hosford

Use a ripe papaya for this sauce. It should have a vivid golden-yellow color and give slightly when pressed with the palm. It will blend better and yield a more flavorful and smooth sauce than an unripe one. Garnish with diced papaya, if desired.
