    2 eggplants
    2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 tsp pepper

    2. Preheat the barbecue to medium heat.
    3. In a large dish combine the olive oil, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place each of the eggplant slices in the dish, flipping them over to ensure both sides are covered in oil.
    4. Grill for approximately 6 minutes per side until golden in color with grill marks.
    5. Once the eggplant is tender and cooked. Remove from the grill and return back to the oil, herb, and garlic mixture in the pan. Flip once so that both sides are coated before transferring to a serving platter. Spoon any of the excess herbs & garlic overtop before serving.
