  • 1 large eggplant (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons Asian garlic chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  1. Heat broiler. Slice eggplant into 3/4-inch-thick rounds; cut each round into 3/4-inch-wide strips. Transfer to a broiler-proof rimmed baking sheet; toss with coarse salt and ground pepper.

  2. In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients; drizzle over eggplant, and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer.

  3. Broil, tossing once, until eggplant is browned and tender, about 15 minutes.
