Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Scoop out the flesh of the eggplant, chop, and reserve. Coat shells with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Saute shrimp, basil and garlic until shrimp turns pink, about 1 minute. Stir in the reserved chopped eggplant. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in wine, and cook 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl, and mix in the bread crumbs and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. If mixture is dry, stir in more olive oil. Stuff mixture into eggplant shells, and sprinkle top with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until eggplant is tender.

I really enjoyed this recipe! I halved the amount of breadcrumbs, doubled the amount of shrimp and of garlic, and added some mushrooms. It was delicious! Definitely a recipe you can play with to suit your own tastes. And it reheats well too!

A little tweaking, and this dish tasted just like my favorite dish at the red bar in grayton beach, florida! less breadcrumbs (about half), add onions, a little more garlic & shrimp, add a little thyme- and this was the best eggplant dish i've ever eaten- divine! this recipe is great for those who love to cook because you can adjust to suit your taste... thanks for a great recipe!

This is a great recipe with a huge amount of flavor; it is easy to make and very versatile. I followed the recipe as stated, except for the following additions. I chopped a medium size onion, a small red, and a small green bell pepper, and sauteed them before I added the rest of the ingredients. I also added thyme and extra garlic, and I used one cup of bread crumbs instead of two. Everyone loved it, and I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
