There are as many varieties of eggplant as there are recipes for this highly versatile vegetable, but eggplant Parmesan is one of the most commonly known preparations and is a staple in my home repertoire.
This dish is famous at NOLA restaurant in the French Quarter. These wings are deboned, stuffed with a mixture of ground pork, chopped shrimp, mushrooms, onions, celery, cilantro and fish sauce. They're baked, then fried and served with a garlicky homemade hoisin dipping sauce.
