This takes a little work but it is well worth the time. It is a delicious home made dinner which can easily pass for a restaurant favorite, only healthier!


This sounds great! Always looking for ways to sneak eggplant into recipes. I will make this without the ham though, want the shrimp flavor to shine.


Everyday it seems like its hard to think of what to prepare for lunch/dinner. I was just suprised i had every ingredients in my kitchen, a plus factor that i had my garden and this great online recipes! Perfect, excellent meal! tasty! thanks


Delicious! Easy to make. Very satisfying. Everyone will love this dish!


Made this with my home grown eggplant for my boyfriend and he loved it. Wants me to make it again.


It seems to be very difficult to find recipes for eggplant. This one combines many ingredients to achieve a fabulous flavour. The shrimp (my favourite seafood) adds flair to the flavour and completes the all round appeal.


I never thought that you can use carnation for a sauce to make eggplant that sounds real good, I usually cook eggplant with meat, tomato, cheese, and sprinkle on top pinenuts, so I'm going to try this one, except I like to drain the eggplant slices in a strainer before frying it otherwise it will retain too much oil, I will try to send you some recipes if you'd like thank you
