  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1⁄2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 medium eggplants


  • In mixing bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, a pinch of salt; set aside. Cut eggplant into lengthwise slices about 1⁄4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining salt and set aside to drain on a sloping board or in a strainer for at least 1 hour so they will lose their bitter juices.
  • Rinse eggplant slices to remove salt, and dry with paper towel. Brush slices with oil and garlic mixture and grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a serving plate and let cool slightly before serving.
