A cajun dish. A deep fried yummy Shrimp-Eggplant Beignets served with my sauce. Or use your own sauce. A big hit at my house. Adjust the oil so it not too hot when cooking. The eggplant gives the dough an extra creaminess. Go ahead and salt, rinse and dry your eggplant if you normally do it. I never do and I enjoy the slight bitterness eggplant has. To each your own! ;)
