Recently I was treated to eggplants according to this recipe and I fell in love with them. I liked the combination of tastes very much. Today I decided to share it with you. They will be in a spicy lemon-honey marinade with garlic. And on the second day, eggplants are even tastier.
Everything is very simple and fast.
These are the ingredients we need.
Wash eggplants, peel and cut each lengthwise into 8 pieces.
I transfer it to a colander, salt, stir and leave for 20 minutes so that the eggplants let the juice go and all the bitterness is gone.
At the end, the eggplant can be squeezed lightly.
Fry in vegetable oil on each side until cooked and put on paper towels to absorb excess fat.
Let's make the sauce.
The honey is slightly heated in the microwave. I add 3 teaspoons of lemon juice to it, salt.
I squeeze out the garlic.
Here everything is optional. You may want more acid, or vice versa. Here, as they say, "the taste and color ..." 🙂 you can also add soy sauce, for example !!
For me, the proportions I gave were perfect.
I transfer the eggplants to the dish on which I will serve, pour the sauce on top, sprinkle with herbs.
Don't worry, the bottom layers will marinate well too.
And it is advisable to leave for 20 minutes so that all the tastes are well combined with each other.
