Shrimp Toast!

Mrs. T and I planned an appetizer night for the boys and it was (mostly) a success. I was drawn to this recipe on pinterest because the picture looked amazing. The original recipe was fried in oil which I wasn't a fan of (although I'm sure it tasted 10x better) so I found another recipe that broiled the shrimp toasts and cooked them that way. This recipe has potential. I liked it but I felt that it was lacking a little something....some zip or pop of flavor. I will keep experimenting with shrimp toasts! (that is if the price of shrimp goes down...)
