Shrimp & Crab Cakes with Mango-Papaya Salsa

When I think Hawaiian food, I think of all the local delights like shave ice, scoops of macaroni salad, spam, and loco mocos. But I also think of macadamia nut-crusted mahi mahi, fresh ahi poke, tender kalua pork and Kahuku shrimp dripping in garlic butter from Giovanni’s shrimp truck. I could live on this food… With these dishes and the smell of coconut oil in mind, I went into the kitchen to create a new version of shrimp cakes. I haven’t made them for a long time, and get requests for them frequently…they are one of my go to appetizers. I wanted this version to have an unmistakable Hawaiian spin with mango, papaya, coconut, and of course, if I’m making anything, it has to have spice.
