  • Cut your eggplant in slices andlay it on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Drizzle generously with olive oiland sprinkle a little salt. Bake at 375 till soft but not too soft. It took meabout 25 minutes but keep checking it as every oven is different.
    Once soft take it out and set aside to cool a bit so that it’s easy tohandle
    Roll each slice and put it through a skewer. 
    In a pan heat some oil and add the sesame oil.
