INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the eggplant into 8, 11/2-to 3 inch rounds. Make “cups” from hollowed-out eggplant rounds with a 1/2 inch-thick rim and bottom. Chop the scooped-out flesh and set it aside.
  3. While the eggplants are still hot, sprinkle them with 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional). Preheat the oven to 450°F. After 18 minutes (partially cooked), remove the eggplants from the oven and set them aside to cool.
  4. Prepare the stuffing while the eggplant is cooking by seasoning the shrimp with salt and black pepper (optional).
  5. In a non-stick pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and cook the shrimp (peeled and deveined) for about 2 minutes until they are pink on the outside. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set it aside.
  6. In the same pan, heat the remaining oil and fry the chopped eggplant flesh with the cauliflower “rice” for 2 minutes over medium-high heat. Add the scallions and continue to cook for 1 minute more, stirring frequently.
  7. Bake in the oven at 450*F for about 10 to 15 minutes until heated through.
