Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Fold garlic into butter. Shape into a narrow log using parchment or wax paper, and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Sprinkle all sides of eggplant with salt. Let sit 15 minutes or until it "sweats". Leave it without touching.
  3. Rinse eggplant. Pat dry with paper towels, and brush with olive oil.
  4. Season liberally on both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  6. Add eggplant to grill, and cook until marked and slightly charred on both sides.
  7. Place a pat of butter mixture on top of each piece and wait until butter is melted before serving.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Save the extra garlic butter. Use it instead of regular butter for things like chicken, fish, and steak.
  • Making the eggplant "sweat" helps bitter flavors come out of the eggplant.
