For the Brinjals

4 large brinjals
sea salt
100 ml olive oil

For the Marinade

2 Tbsp (30 ml) parsley, roughly chopped
5 garlic cloves, roasted
3 sprigs thyme
1 bay leaf
40 ml lemon juice
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
crushed black pepper

 To Make the Brinjals

Slice the brinjals into 1 cm disks and sprinkle with sea salt and leave to stand for 30 minutes to extract the bitterness. Wash, drain and dry the brinjals slices.

To cook, either grill or pan-fry.

To grill – preheat the oven to 200 °C, lightly brush the slices with olive oil and place on a baking tray in a single layer. Grill for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

To pan fry – heat a splash of olive oil in a frying pan, fry the slices over a medium-high heat until golden brown on each side.

To Make the Marinade

Combine all of the ingredients for the marinade and season to taste.

Place the grilled/fried brinjals into the marinade and serve.
