    I am from New Orleans. This is the first time I have ever seen something similar to my family recipe & it is absolutely our favorite! I have always had to wing it because I have never had a recipe. I use only 2 med to large eggplants & cook in salted water & I use 2 lbs of shrimp. I put my egg into the mixture once it has cooled. I have never topped with cheese but I will from now on. So Happy to find this. Thanks for posting!
