Soy Chilli & Ginger Eggplant Steak that can be either grilled or fried. Perfect for the sunny days!
I love eggplant, always have. It can come across quite blant, however, when I was training as a chef, I was told that eggplant is basically a sponge, so you need to flavour it!
That is why in this recipe we have marinated the eggplant steaks before cooking.

To have the perfect eggplant steaks use a large straight eggplant if possible. Cut the edges of the eggplant, (both sides) then cut in half lengthways for a perfect thick steak – check out the image below:

After you have cut the edges, you cut across the middle!
