Eggplants a la Dawlish

Recipe by  

"Eggplant without garlic? Yes, it can work - deliciously. This recipe seems to me to bring out the glorious flavor of eggplant and is wonderful for a change to other garlicky eggplant recipes. It is important not to pulverize the coriander. "

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Brush both sides of each eggplant slice generously with olive oil; arrange in a single layer in the bottom of a broiler pan. Scatter about half of the cracked coriander seed over the eggplant slices.
  3. Cook under the broiler until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip and season with the remaining coriander seed; cook under the broiler until browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Whisk the lemon juice, basil, and salt together in a bowl; drizzle over the broiled eggplant slices. Serve warm.

This was ok. I didn't have coriander seed so I used ground coriander.

This review is based on how I made it, not the recipe as written. I used 1 tsp dried cilantro instead of coriander seed and upped the lemon juice to 2 Tbsp. I mixed all the seasonings into the oil prior to applying to slices. After baking, topped with diced fresh tomatoes that were mixed with a little basil and salt. Easy and yummy.

I did not have coriander seed so used a different herb mix, but even so this was quite good. There were leftovers, and it got better every time I ate it! The lemon seemed to blend with the spice over time to deliver a really tasty flavor.

I used oriental eggplant. Great recipe. Next time I'm going to cut the peal off.

I really enjoyed this. I sweat the eggplant first to get rid of the bitterness and cut into rounds. This was my first time using coriander and I was surprised what a nice, faint flavor it adds. I made this according to the recipe first and thought it was great. Then I added tomatoes, feta and more lemon and basil for a nicer presentation. See my before and after photos. Next time I will cut thicker than 1/4 inch because it doesn't hold its shape very well when cut so thin. I will also peel the eggplant as I'm not a fan of the skin, but that's just preference. My eggplant stuck to the pan a little despite the olive oil coating so I would recommend spraying your pan lightly with cooking spray. Overall a tasty and easy recipe that I would make again.
