  • 1 Eggplant
  • 2 tsp Sea Salt

Garlic Herb Sauce

  • 2/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt


  • Cut the eggplant into 1/2inch thick slices (either diagonal or crosswise). Make sure to leave on the skin as this helps the eggplant to retain its shape during cooking and develop a crispy crust.
  • Line eggplant in a single layer on a baking sheet. Generously salt each slice on both sides and set aside for at least 15 minutes to draw out the moisture.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat. Wipe each of the slices with a paper towel or cloth to remove the excess salt and moisture.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the garlic-herb sauce ingredients. Coat each slice of eggplant in the sauce by placing it in the dish and flipping over so each side is coated thoroughly.
  • Grill the eggplant for 6-8 minutes per side, or until they are golden and/or have grill marks. Once the eggplant is cooked, remove it from the grill and drizzle any remaining garlic and herb sauce on the eggplant.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!
