Lime Wedges


For the Blackberry Chili Sauce

Step 1
Stir all the ingredients, except the sambal oelek and blackberries, together in a bowl.

Step 2
Taste and see if you’d like more spice. If yes, add the sambal oelek. Then stir in the blackberries. The sauce is ready to use now, but it’s even better after a 2-hour rest at room temperature. Keep in the refrigerator in a tightly closed container for up to 4 days.

For the Shrimp

Step 1
Toss the shrimp with the ginger, salt, chili flakes and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.

Step 2
Pour the remaining tablespoon of oil into a large skillet (nonstick is good here), place over medium-high heat and, when
the oil is hot, add the shrimp.

Step 3
Cook the shrimp, turning as needed, until done, 2 to 3 minutes on a side.

Step 4
Transfer the shrimp to a bowl.

To Build the Fold-Over (a suggestion)

Step 1
Spread the tortilla with Blackberry Umami Sauce, leaving a bare border.

Step 2
Make a bed of slaw or carrots and lay on some shrimp.

Step 3
Top the shrimp with mango, sliced red chile, radishes, scallions, pickled onions and some sprigs of cilantro.

Step 4
Drizzle generously with Blackberry-Chili Sauce, give everything a squirt of lime juice and then enjoy!

Step 5
Put a bowl of Blackberry-Chili Sauce on the table for dipping.
