    Chef #610952's Note:

    Culinary notes: Most eggplants produce a bitter tasting alkaloid. A method for removing this unwanted flavor is to sprinkle the slices with salt and let them rest in a colander for an hour. Afterwards. Rise the slices under cold water. Gently squeezing out the moisture pressing on the slices also collapses the eggplants air pockets reducing the absorption of oil during frying

      I'm resubmitting this review because somehow no stars showed up the first time. So sorry, because it definitely deserves all 5 of them! Huge, huge hit! I used tomato sauce already on hand (sweetomato's wonderful recipe) and dipped the eggplant slices in cornstarch first as I always do to avoid greasiness, but you get full credit for suggesting combining all these ingredients in a wonderful new way. Thanks so much for the sensational recipe!

      This was delicious, and looked impressive, like something you'd get at a restaurant. I have to confess, however, that due to being pressed for time, I cheated and used store-bought marinara sauce. (I added some fresh basil to the sauce though.) In spite of my cheating, the recipe turned out great. I'd consider making this for a dinner party.
