Baked Shrimp Toasts with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
Originally a Thai recipe, shrimp toasts are supposedly deep fried, but I'm not in the mood to deep fry(have to clean up) so I baked it instead. Truth to be told, I prefer them deep fried because they'll go well with beer. Don't get me wrong, these are great too, especially when you are counting your calories.
