Fried Eggplant with Herbs & Honey

I saw this dish on a menu at a tapas restaurant a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious! I knew immediately that I needed to recreate this at home. I took a couple of attempts, but I finally have a recipe worth sharing!


This dish is perfect for a snack, side or even as something special to make at a holiday gathering!


  • Eggplant
  • Course Salt
  • Honey
  • Rosemary or Thyme


  • Cut the eggplant in thin slices
  • Heat vegetable or canola oil until it’s super hot. It’s important to add your herb while it’s eating so you don’t burn yourself with splatter. I used about 1/2 inch of oil in a deep cast iron pan
  • Lightly dredge the eggplant with flour
  • Fry the eggplant until golden on both sides
  • Drain excess oil on paper towels and sprinkle course salt while it’s still warm
  • To plate, drizzle some honey over top!

Hope you enjoy!
