What's Your Signature Dish?

Awhile back, we had an interesting thread about what was your cooking specialty. Here's the link here if anyone wants to add to that thread. This is more about a type of cuisine, rather than any one dish:

So... what's your specialty?

For this thread, I'm asking what is your signature dish. What is that one dish that everyone associates you with, that one dish that you've taken to every restaurant you've worked in, that one dish that anyone who knows you asks you to make. If you have a picture of it, please, please post it because everyone loves to see pictures of food. I'll start with my own. I'm cheating a bit because it's actually a combination of two dishes, but hey. My signature dish(es) are: a Scallion and Wakame Crusted Ahi Tempura served with a Ponzu Beurre Blanc, and a Miso-Glazed Hamachi (or Kanpachi) served with an Orange-Ginger-Scallion Vinaigrette, finished with Shiso Oil, topped with a Citrus-Truffle Pea Shoot Salad.

I'd have to say mine would be my Chocolate Raspberry torte. Ken took a picture of it but the camera is a bit hooped (got dropped!) and I can't download it yet so here is a sample of what it looks like. Just picture a whole cake like this.

Mine isn't nearly as elegant. But it is light, fluffy, has an amazing texture, and is loved by everyone who has tried it. I'm speaking of course of Goodweed's "Worlds Best Panckakes" recipe. It's closely followed by the barbecue turkey though, and we already have a picture of that under teh pictues section of DC.

Oh, by the say, Ironchef, your recipe looks amazing. And I'm sure that after reading the ingredients, it must taste as good as it looks.

Vietnamese eggrolls. I learned to make them from a Viet immigrant while I was in high school... MAN are they good. Made them for just about everyone at Iowa State while I was there. Ironically, people still identify me with that, but I haven't made them in years.

I love eggrolls. Care to share your recipe? If so, can you put it in the ethnic forum please?

My "signature" dish is nothing special, but I love it. I bread and fry eggplant and then layer it like lasagna with fresh sliced tomatoes, hard salami, and mozzarella cheese.
