    Great. Had this for dinner and instead of capers I used kalamata olives. It was so delicious. Four ppl are out all of it

    Loved by many at a BBQ. Next time I’d like to try also roasting the garlic as I felt the raw was overwhelming the dish a bit

    was not to my liking. Don't let my opinion sway anyone who loves eggplant not to try this recipe. It could be great and to your taste.

    very tough and dry. I added tomato sauce and rebaked it. I will add pasta, because it is very rich.

    This was terrible, the eggplant was like leather I BBQ' it per the recipe, did several batches at different cooking times and they were all terrible ended up throwing it all away that hasn't happened in years : (

    Amazing! I grilled on my indoor grill as it is winter and freezing outside. Results were great. I regularly grill eggplant on the outdoor grill but this recipe is superior. Once my herb garden is plenty full This summer,I will certainly add fresh herbs to this recipe for a change.

    Bring it to a potluck or bbq! You can make it ahead, serve cold, and everyone will rave and ask you for the recipe.

    Its a yumm recipe. But I cut the eggplant slices very thin and so some slices came out burned with bitterness. Overall really good

    Wow, wow, wow. The marinade was fab.u.lous. Perfect for eggplant. I salted and baked mine rather than grill. (No grill. ). I tried to save some for my family. I failed. Am salting more eggplant right now. Maybe they'll get some. Maybe not.

    It came out delicious! I baked the eggplant in the oven after slicing it for 15 mins on 400F. Flipping over half way through. Love this recipe.

    I used Chinese Eggplant (the long light purple kind) as it's less bitter. I cut them lengthwise in thinner slices and it was quicker to cook and was nice and soft. I did not have parsley so used cilantro and omitted the capers as I didn't have that too. Next time I will use capers as I do like a little tartness. Just had it with tuna. Was absolutely delicious.

    The photo of the finished recipe is very enticing. I imagined that the texture of the grilled eggplant would be softer as it is after being roasted. But it was not as soft as I thought it would be. The recipe preparation is quite labor extensive and uses more ingredients than I usually do. However, dear Hubby loved this and he is quite fussy. I served this with an orzo dish with spinach, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and feta. It was a nice pairing with the eggplant and is a nice showpiece recipe for when company comes for dinner.
