Baked Eggplant W/ Cheese and Shrimp

Happy Thursday! I thought I had shared this with you last week my bad. My days are all starting to blend. I wrote this last Tuesday, hope you enjoy :)

Hey loves, so my lil mama will be officially going away for the first time on her very own vacation. No parents all her doing and planning. She is headed to Montreal for a few days. So as a bonding meal to chat and share I decided to make this dish. I am continuing to enjoy this summer as best I can as well so after my meal prep I'll be off on a nice walk. I got home at 5 tonight so was able to invest more time in the kitchen which this meal actually needed. It's about an hour start to finish but I think worth it. If someone has easier way to handle the Eggplant please let me know I prefer 30 minutes or less.
Ok here we go....

Thursday's treat Eggplant w/Cheese and Shrimps!
ingredients:
-Eggplant
-shrimps
-pram cheese
-salt
-pepper
-parsley
-olive oil
-onions
-all purpose flour



Use 1 large Eggplant cut into slices pat down with a paper towel to remove moisture. Some people use salt and papers towels routine I think it's way to much effort involved. I pour 1/3 cup of flour in a bowl, turn heat on medium use a large skillet and add 2 tbsp of Olive oil. I dip my slices in the flour on both sides and when oil is ready I place a few pieces at a time till lightly golden each side about 4 minutes each. This is the part I didn't like because it's time consuming. Eggplants tend to soak up the oil and I ended up having to drizzle more oil several times.

While the Eggplant cooked I turned toaster oven on bake @400. In a separate bowl I mixed 1 cup of baby salad shrimps (you can use what you like), 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/3 cup onions (I prefer red), 1 tbs of Parm cheese. Mixed well and set aside. I sprayed a baking sheet with Pam and removed my Eggplants from skillet.


I placed them on bake sheet, took a spoonful of my Shrimp mix and placed in the center. I baked these for 20 minutes. Once done I set them all on a plate, cut up some Avocados on the side. Can you tell we love these things for real lol.
I served mine with some extra Parm cheese and sprinkled some parsley but you can tweak to your preference.
It wasn't quick but sure was yummy. We chatted, laughed and caught up on our PLL finale lol.
Enjoy!

Always stress free xo.
