I got this recipe from a cooking class in Hoi An, Vietnam. Such a flavorful and easy way to prepare eggplant. Now this is a family favorite! Serve garnished with green onion and basil.

I made this as to the recipe, I could not get white eggplant so I used regular. I salted the eggplant to avoid bitterness, and should have rinsed it off as the oyster sauce has a lot of sodium but it was still AWESOME!!!!. If you like Viet. food or eggplant you must try this. I should have doubled this as we wanted more and there was just the 2 of us. I served this with Viet. vermacelli bowls also found on Allrecipes.com It was a perfect paring. Read More
