Title: Eggplant Stuffed with Oysters
Categories: Creole, Seafood
      Yield: 4 servings
      2 lg Eggplants, split lengthwise
      2    Jars (10 ounces each) oysters
      3 tb Olive oil
  1 1/2 c  Finely diced onion
      2 lg Garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 ts Herbes de Provence
    1/2 ts Creole seafood seasoning
      2 tb Dry white wine
           I cup fresh bread crumbs
      1 tb Minced chives
    1/4 c  Grated Parmesan
  Creole-style seafood seasoning blends are sold in 
most markets; you
  can use a mixture of salt and red, white and black 
  Chesapeake- style seasonings, such as Old Bay, are 
another option.
  Bake the eggplant halves in a 400F oven until just 
tender.  Scrape
  out the pulp, leaving a shell about 1/2 inch thick 
attached to the
  skin. Discard any big clumps of seeds and chop the 
pulp coarsely.
  Drain the oysters, reserving the liquor.  Chop oysters 
  bite-sized pieces.
  Heat the oil in a skillet; add the onion and garlic 
and cook until the
  onion softens.  Add the herbs and seasoning mix, then 
stir in the
  oyster liquor and wine.  Reduce slightly, then stir 
in the eggplant
  pulp, bread crumbs, oysters and chives.  Cook for 
1 minute, then
  taste for seasoning and adjust to taste.  Spread the 
mixture evenly
  in the eggplant shells and top with Parmesan.  Return 
to the oven and
  bake until nicely browned.
  Serves 4.
