  • Cook's Note:

I didn't bother with the garlic salt, just marinated and grilled. Delish!

Don't normally like eggplant. LOVE this recipe. Didn't change a thing.


This was delicious! My husband and I scarfed it down and didn't have to add any salt or seasonings. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect just the way it was! Make sure to baste the eggplant with the marinade throughout grilling. Thanks!
