    I would second that this is a terrific dish. I did my eggplant in the microwave a la Modernist Cuisine...split them in half, put on paper towels and then covered with same, microwaved for three minutes on high. For the sesame paste I roasted whole skin on seeds until dark brown and pulverized them in the mortar and pastel.

    p. 86 -A wonderful dish that received rave reviews, even from K who had 3 helpings! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to obtain the Asian sesame paste so I made my own concoction by mixing tahini w some roasted sesame oil to heighten the sesame flavour. . . this seemed to do the trick. We elected to grill our eggplant. The book gives you a choice of basting the eggplant w sesame oil or chilli oil and we chose sesame. This really was delicious! Served at room temperature it made a lovely side dish that was unique in it’s texture, and flavour profile. Happy to recommend this recipe, two chopsticks up!
