Melted Eggplant



  • 1 (1-pound) eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Season both sides of eggplant slices with 1 1/4 teaspoons salt; let stand at least one hour. Pat eggplant dry with paper towels, and sprinkle with pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggplant slices; cook 3 minutes or until browned. Turn slices over. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 25 minutes or until eggplant is soft.
