      I took Bill's suggestion and sprinkled my shrimp with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning Salt and let it sit while I prepared the rest of the dish. I used Italian eggplant, and 3 cans of diced tomatoes with 1 can of tomato sauce, 2 Tablespoons of garlic. I also modified the recipe to reduce the fat content. Instead of using 2 tablespoons of oil to saute the eggplant, I sprayed a nonstick frying pan with Olive Oil PAM spray and was therefore able to tastefully reduce the fat content by more than 50% (sauteed the garlic in only 1 teaspoon of oil instead of 1 Tablespoon in nonstick frying pan as well). Hooray for my waistline!
