  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle garlic salt over both sides of eggplant slices; let sit for 30 minutes to release water.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Remove eggplant from marinade and arrange on preheated grill; cook until tender, occasionally basting with marinade, about 5 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • 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.

Followed recipe as written, eggplant was dry and tasted very salty. Will not make this again. The salt took too much water out of the eggplant and made if very dry.

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 ac...

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!
