1 Trim the tops and bottoms of the eggplants. Cut the eggplant crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Sprinkle the eggplant slices generously with salt. Place the slices in a colander and let stand over a plate to drain 30 minutes. Rinse off the salt with cool water and dry the slices with paper towels.
2 Place a barbecue grill or broiler rack about 5 inches away from the heat source. Preheat the grill or broiler.
3 Brush the vegetable slices with olive oil and place them with the oiled side toward the source of the heat. Cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Turn the slices and brush them with oil. Cook until browned and tender, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper.
4 Arrange the vegetables on a platter. Drizzle with additional oil and sprinkle with the basil. Serve hot or at room temperature.
