How to salt an eggplant…

I like to salt my eggplants before cooking as this removes the excess water and reduces the eggplants ability to absorb oil.

Step 1

Peel and cut it in whatever size and shape pieces the recipe calls for.

Step 2

Place the eggplants, one layer at a time, in a colander and sprinkle with some coarse salt.







Step 3

Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes then a pat dry with a towel to remove the excess water and salt.

Step 4

Beads of moisture will start to form on the surface of the eggplants, pat dry to remove excess water and salt.  Then cook according to your recipe.
