This Asian-themed side dish is great with fried rice with chicken, meat, or fish.


  • 1 large eggplant (about 1 ½ pounds)

  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoons ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons Asian garlic chili sauce

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  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.
