Grilled Eggplants in Garlic Oyster Sauce

Grilled Eggplants in Garlic Oyster Sauce is one tasty vegetable side dish, its quite easy to make and a perfect pair with grilled meats.

When I first saw this Asian eggplant with garlic oyster Sauce at Bams Kitchen I told myself I got to do that one as I am a big fan of vegetables dressed with oyster sauce. It’s simple, quick to make and most importantly yummy. I made some minor changes like grilling the eggplants for that smoky flavour and here is my version, thanks Bam!

    I did promise I’d finally stop by and so here I am, and boy am I glad I dropped in on this one! I’m a massive aubergine fan (or eggplants as some say) and this actually reminds me a lot of a dish served in my favourite Chinese restaurant. Thanks for sharing Raymund – it looks really nice and I’ll be giving it a try soon! πŸ™‚
