Ingredients list

  • 500 g eggplant
  • 2 pieces beefsteak tomatos
  • 70 g flour
  • 50 g pecorino cheese grated
  • chili
  • salt
  • coarse sea salt
  • sunflower oil

Directions

  • Wash the eggplant and remove the stalks. Cut oblong slices about 1cm thick with a vegetable slicer. Then place the slices in a mesh strainer and sprinkle each with a little coarse sea salt. Weigh them down with a plate and let them drain for about 1 hour. This will remove the bitter water from the eggplant. After the resting time, wash the salt from the eggplant slices, then pat dry with paper towels.
  • Now turn the slices in flour and gently shake off the excess flour. Heat sunflower oil in a large frying pan until the oil thermometer shows about 170°C (340°F). Fry a few floured eggplant slices at a time in the hot oil until lightly browned. Then briefly drain on a large plate with paper towels.
  • Arrange the eggplants side by side on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cut the tomatoes into fine rings and place each on a slice of eggplant. Season with chili and salt to taste and sprinkle with grated pecorino.
  • Finally, place in the preheated oven at 200°C (400°F) top/bottom heat and bake for 10 minutes. Then remove and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!

My tip

Instead of Pecorino you can also use Parmesan or Mozzarella!
