This versatile recipe goes well with grilled meats or sliced up and tossed with pasta. Thanks to the Cajun seasoning, it gets more attention than an ordinary side dish.—Greg Fontenot, The Woodlands, Texas

"This is a great way to make eggplant. I salted the slices and let them sit for 20 minutes, then patted with a paper towel. They cook up quickly depending on how hot your grill is, so watch that they don't burn."

"I have never tried eggplant and this recipe was so good! Even my boyfriend who won't eat peas liked it! I did it on the george forman, but next time I might broil them so they are a little more crisp."
