Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle garlic salt over both sides of eggplant slices; let sit for 30 minutes to release water.

  • Place eggplant slices in a large dish; drizzle with fish sauce. Add basil, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil; stir to evenly coat. Marinate for about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove eggplant from marinade and arrange on preheated grill; cook until tender, occasionally basting with marinade, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

If grilling isn't your thing, cut eggplant into 1-inch cubes instead of slices and bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Serve with flat bread, kalamata olives, and feta cheese.

This was delicious! My husband and I scarfed it down and didn't have to add any salt or seasonings. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect just the way it was! Make sure to baste the eggplant with the marinade throughout grilling. Thanks! Read More

I love eggplant and balsamic but I didn't like them together. However hubs really liked it so it's a 4. I made this as written without the optional fish sauce. Several reviewers said that they found it too salty and I wonder if a step is missing in the recipe as it should be rinsed and dried before marinating. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I didn't use the fish sauce but the result was still really good. This is my go-to marinade now for both eggplant and zucchini (I quarter the zucchini lengthwise into spears). My husband now actually likes to grill veggies! Read More

Followed exactly including the fish sauce and thought it was great. I probably used a little less of everything because my wife isn't crazy about balsamic vinegar but it was really tasty! Read More
