Shrimp toast, already one of the greatest gifts to the world's taste buds, receives a perhaps unnecessary, but much appreciated, additional boost from chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo (of Animal) at their new L.A. seafood-centric Son of a Gun. The two dudes take the classic shrimp toast and sandwichize it, slapping gorgeous hunks of tender shrimp between slices of crackly, buttery grilled toast.
