DIRECTIONS

  • Peel eggplants and slice into 3/4 inch slices. Sprinkle both sides with salt, and let sit about 20 minutes to draw out the water. Blot both sides with paper towel.
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook eggplant about 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned. Remove eggplant to serving dish.
  • While eggplant is cooking, combine capers, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, parsley, basil and 1 tbsp olive oil. For a finely chopped sauce, you can pulse this mixture in a food processor, otherwise can leave as is (if not using capers, leave as is).
  • Add last tbsp olive oil to pan, heat about 30 seconds, then add red onion and saute 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and saute another minute. Add caper mixture and heat through for about a minute.
  • Pour sauce over eggplant and serve immediately.
