Ingredients
  • 1 eggplant, about 1 pound, cut into 8 1-inch slices
  • 8 ounces lamb tenderloin, cut into 8 1-ounce medallions
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Rosemary Aioli:
  • 1/2 cup prepared or homemade mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 slices of Parmesan cheese ( 2-inch by 1-inch)
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Black pepper for rim
Directions

Preheat the grill. For Rosemary Aioli: In mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, garlic and rosemary and blend until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

For eggplant and lamb: Rub each piece lightly with the olive oil to prevent from sticking to the grill. Season with salt and pepper. On a hot grill, grill each piece of eggplant for 1 minute on each side. Remove from the grill and set aside. Place the lamb medallions on the grill and cook until medium rare, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and set aside.

To assemble, place a small pool of the aioli in the center of the plate. Alternate layering the eggplant and lamb medallions four times. Top with a slice of Parmesan Cheese. Drizzle the remaining aioli over top and garnish with flaming rosemary sp
