Eggplant with Plum Sauce
- Slice small (3 inches or less) eggplant in half lengthwise, spread with olive oil and salt and grill over barbecue until browned on both sides and barely cooked. Salt and set aside.
- Meanwhile make the sauce: Mix together
¼ of plum jam,
3-4 skinned plums if you have nice fresh, ripe plum
2-3 Tbs. soy sauce
I Tbs. grated fresh ginger
!-2 Tbs. minced garlic
1 tsp Asian chili garlic sauce (optional)
¼ cup Iron Chef Sesame Garlic Sauce : NOTE: I have to defend using a ready made sauce but I have to say it really kicks it up significantly. This sauce is all natural with no preservatives and not particularly high in sodium.
3. Boil these ingredients together for 5 minutes until the flavors meld and it is slightly
- Put the cooked eggplant in an oven or grill proof dish and cover with the sauce. I add more garlic since I love garlic. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes in hot covered grill (300°-400°). It should be boiling hard so that the sauce thickens. But check to make sure it is not burning.
