How to Fry Eggplants like a Sicilian Mama

Well, I read a lot about cooking. I don’t always do what I read but I find it fascinating. I’ve always found eggplant yummy at a restaurant but not in my kitchen. I just have not yet figured it out.

And then I found this. How to Fry Eggplants like a Sicilian Mama, at FXCuisine. It is interesting. I am not sure I want to fry anything in a lot of oil, but now I know some things I did not know before. You might find it interesting, too. There are many good photos and not a lot of extra talk. A very good food page.

    I don’t cook eggplant much but Mom always soaked it in salt water for about 30 minutes to get some of the bitterness out. Then she dipped it in egg and flour and fried it in a skillet. I think the trick is to cut it thin so it cooks fairly quickly and doesn’t just soak up whatever fat you’re cooking it in. I’ve used bread crumbs — either plain or the Italian style — when I’ve cooked it instead of the flour. Love to get eggplant parmesan in good Italian restaurants.

    Lynn,
    Look on the Cooks Illustrated site http://www.cooksillustrated.com/ for their Eggplant
    Parmesan recipe. It makes slightly crunchy breaded slices that are made in the oven. There is very little oil involved. The slices are delicious by themselves or in a recipe.
