Grilled Japanese Eggplant

This elegant side dish is the perfect accompaniment to a roasted leg of lamb and Cabernet Sauvignon.




serves 8-10

Pierce eggplants with a fork and grill on high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until completely soft. Immediately plunge into an ice bath and let rest. When cool to the touch, peel from the stem down and place whole eggplants in a sauté pan with olive oil, salt and pepper.  

Leave the pan uncovered and place in an oven preheated to 325 degrees for 10 minutes.

Transfer the eggplant to a serving dish and garnish with fresh basil.
