This dish was compiled, out of complete
desperation to create an appetizer one day. It was one of those days. I stood
in my kitchen, opening and closing the fridge and removing random items.
Brainstorming and trying to concoct some creative combination that will work.
The results??! An epic hit of a dish, that’s a gourmet
and gorgeous appetizer for any Yomtov meal! This is a tasty tower, combining 3
different flavors and textures, and dripping with flavor.
Soy Rice: 1 cup rice 1 Tbsp. oil 1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce 1 tsp. teriyaki sauce 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 2 cups boiling water
For rice, Preheat oven to 350. In a 5x7" pan, combine
all ingredients and bake covered @ 350 for 1 hour. Heat skillet with canola oil and fry slices of pastrami.
For eggplant, Dip eggplant slices in beaten egg,
followed by panko crumbs. Then again in the egg and again in the panko crumbs.
In oil fry each eggplant slice till golden and crumbs crunchy. Drain on
paper-towel lined plate.
To Assemble, place eggplant slice, then a bit of rice, fried salami
slice, more rice and cover the whole tower with a second eggplant slice. Finish
it off with a shpritz of bbq sauce.
