No, no, no ... Fish nibs and okra chips are not allowed. You have to submit FOOD for this throwdown: Nachos, crisp bacon, even pork butts cooked to 300*, and I'm ok with pig skins, but no crunchy fishy okra thingies.

I suppose you could make the eggplant skin crispy. I shudder to think of any attempt to make the meat crispy.

Sounds like a challenge to me. Maybe another fish, Okra, and eggplant trio?

Hmmmm...eggplant. Mandoline. Deep skillet on the kettle. Lotsa oil at 375 or so. Yep, I think I could make eggplant crispy.

I know what I want to do...the question is whether or not I get the chance to do it. And maybe also a little bit of whether or not I can actually make it right.

OK I just checked the rules and I think I can do this one. (It didn't say it has to be edible) I have had great success at making food crispy.
