Reviews for Spicy Grilled Eggplant
"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."
"A versatile recipe I will use in other dishes!"
"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."
