OMG ~ these are just to die for :) WONDERFUL flavor, and they cooked up so fast. I used fresh baby white eggplant from my garden, and 2 very large garlic cloves. I think next time I'll add a bit more red pepper flakes, and salt (I cut the salt to 1 teaspoon and should have added 1 1/2 as written).I ended up with 40 beignets, and they were a healthy size. ~Rita~, thanks so much for a FABULOUS recipe ~ this one definitely goes in the keeper cookbook and in my opinion, would be very impressive to serve to company. BRAVO! Made for ZWT5, Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.

Very light and fluffy fried seafood beignets. They were like tempura...very light and fluffy. I chose this because I have way too many eggplants from the garden, and this was a very unique way to use them. A bonus...my DS ate eggplant and enjoyed it for the first time! I used Virginia Cherry Blossom's Creole Remoulade Sauce 373985 because I really like capers in my remoulade sauce, plus she is a Senorita!! Made for ZWT5.

These are absolutely fantastic! I made just a quarter batch for DS, his friend and myself. I got maybe 10 beignets. They are so easy to make and the remoulade sauce is delicious! I didn't have a whole grain mustard so I used horseradish mustard and it was soooo good! I'm thinking of maybe adding a little diced red pepper next time as well. The boys couldn't believe they ate eggplant! They loved it. Thanks so much for sharing a new favorite recipe. Brenda.

These were light and flavorful, especially for being fried. You can't eat just one... but better then the potato chips.

Wonderful, great flavor and mix of flavors. This is the kind of dish you'd expect to find at one of those rare hole-in-the-wall but fantastic food restaurants. The sauce is easier than it looks.

I had a seafood dinner last weekend and served these beignets. They were a huge hit and the remoulade sauce is a must alongside these. The only change I made was to add in a bit more shrimp. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
