1 – Place one-half package of thawed shrimp in 1 layer in a large, wide-mouthed, covered baking dish with 1 inch of water.  Microwave for 3 minutes on high.  When finished, drain the shrimp in a colander.  Place the shrimp in a small mixing bowl.  Add 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of horseradish sauce, and 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise.  Season with salt.  Stir well.  Keep in the refrigerator until time for dinner.

2 – Cut open an avocado and remove the pit.  Cut the avocado while still in the shell, and then turn out on a cutting board.  Mash the avocado with a fork.  Place in a small mixing bowl.  Season with Bac’n pieces, paprika, and lemon juice.  Stir well.  Keep in the refrigerator until time for dinner.

3 – Cut 3 large slices of eggplant, and the cut around the peel.  Discard the peel.  Slice the eggplant in pie-shaped pieces.  Place in a plastic bag with a very tiny amount of water and some olive oil.  Pour in one-third cup of garlic – herb breadcrumbs.  Shake well.  Place the eggplant in a covered baking dish with a little water.  Add more olive oil if desired.  Microwave on high for 4 minutes.

4 – Serve the avocado dip as an appetizer.  Then serve the shrimp salad cold, with the eggplant as a side.
