3 medium eggplants - -- (1 lb ea), sliced lengthwise
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 medium Onions -- sliced
1 can italian plum tomatoes - -- (28 oz), drained, crushed
1 cup torn mint leaves - -- (tightly packed)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
8 fillets flat anchovies

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat a grill or a stovetop grill over high heat. In a pot of boiling, salted water blanch eggplant slices for 2 minutes without crowding; you may have to do this in batches. Drain on paper towels and pat dry. Brush with olive oil and grill, covered, until slightly charred and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Season to taste with salt and pepper and transfer to a serving bowl. Heat oil in a saucepan and saute onions just until softened. Add tomato, heat to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Pour over eggplant. Sprinkle with mint and balsamic. Toss carefully, trying to keep slices whole. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. Top decoratively with anchovies before serving.
