A friend of mine made this for dinner for us, and I can't tell you how good it is. It made a great side dish with our grilled salmon, and would go with any grilled meat or fish really. I would have it on it's own for lunch too. It comes from Delia Smith. If you don't have a grill pan for the top of the stove, you can just broil the eggplant, but I like the nice lines the pan leaves. The recipe tells you to skin the tomatoes, but my friend didn't bother and neither would I ! I would make this ahead though, so all the flavors can mingle and get to know one another. Plus, then it's all done, and you can have an extra glass of wine while someone else grills your meat or fish!
