Gratuitous Sexiness: Shrimp Toast

I'm apparently still on my fried shrimp binge, and so the form has moved on to toast. Minced shrimp, water chestnuts, and other flavorful, crunchy stuff, smeared on white bread, breaded (in this case), and fried. Different than Chinese shrimp toast, whose ingredients are finer ground and not served with any kind of dipping sauce, Chill Out Cafe's version (on Maple and Burdette, Uptown) comes with a flaky, battered layer and peanut and sweet chili infused ramekin of accompaniment. The portion is delightfully sizable and a bit on the greasier side, but what do you expect of deep fried bread and topping?
