Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 baby eggplants (1 1/4 pounds) or 1 large eggplant, cut lengthwise into 1-inch-thick slices and scored
  • Salt

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium. In small bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce and 1 tablespoon oil; set aside.

  2. Halve eggplants lengthwise; slice a bit off the skin side so they lie flat, and score both sides in a crisscross pattern.

  3. Brush both sides of eggplant halves with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and season with salt. Grill until charred and tender, 4 to 7 minutes per side. Brush both sides generously with reserved hoisin mixture; grill each side again just to glaze, about 1 minute per side. Serve hot.
