HONEY GARLIC EGGPLANT PLATE

November 7, 2017

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large Japanese eggplant
  • grape seed oil for frying
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • toasted black sesame seeds, for garnish
  • sliced green onions, for garnish
  • fluffy white rice or grain of choice, to serve

PREPARATION:

  1. Cut the eggplant into 3/4 inch sticks.
  2. In a deep-sided skillet, heat up 1/2 inch of oil over medium to medium-high until it reaches 360°F. Fry eggplant in small batches, flipping if needed, until lightly golden brown, about two minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a cooling rack.
  3. In a small sauce pan, heat up a touch of oil and cook the garlic on medium heat until slightly golden, but not browned, 1-2 minutes. Add the honey, soy sauce and ground pepper. Turn the heat up to high so the honey-soy mixture bubbles, thickens and turns into caramel-sticky goodness.
  4. Toss the eggplant with the sauce and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy immediately with rice or grain of choice.
