This app gets a triple dose of heat: It’s coated with Cajun seasoning, topped with fresh chiles and served with a sweet chili sauce. An air fryer is a great way to make the dish at home.

For Topping


  1. Make the shrimp: Preheat the oven to 300°. Place the bacon on a baking sheet and bake until the fat is partly rendered, 10 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Lightly season the shrimp with Cajun seasoning. Wrap each shrimp with 1 bacon slice and secure in place with a toothpick.
  3. Place the shrimp in an air fryer set to 380°. Cook, flipping once, until the bacon is crisp and the shrimp is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Make the slaw: Combine the cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Mix by hand.
  5. Make the chili sauce: Combine the sweet chili sauce, sriracha, soy sauce, 1/4 cup water, the fish sauce, lime juice and vinegar in a medium bowl. Transfer about 3/4 cup to a pitcher; save the remaining sauce for another use.
  6. Arrange the slaw on a platter or plates, then pile the crispy shrimp over the slaw. Top with the jalapeno, Fresno chile and cilantro. Serve with the charred lime halves and the pitcher of chili sauce.
