Comment on Golden Eggplant Fries by Theresa in Mérida.

Great recipe, I love eggplant. If you salt eggplant and leave it to drain forever in a collander. Ok,not really forever but at least 4 hours, the longer the better. They will look all shriveled, but do not dispair. Wipe them off and then fry them. They will absorb less oil and be the best tasting eggplant ever. My current favorite eggplant dish is eggplant, tomato, and onion salad.
