  • 1 large aubergine
  • 1-2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped roasted peanuts
  • 3 tbsp ready-made crispy shallots
  • handful of coriander leaves


  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1 long shallot, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 bird’s-eye chilli, finely sliced
  • small handful of coriander, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced to make 2 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce


  • STEP 1

    Heat the grill to high. Brush the aubergine with the oil, put on a baking tray and cook under the grill for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, until the skin is charred and the aubergine is soft.

  • STEP 2

    Mix together all of the dressing ingredients in a bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Put the grilled aubergine on a large plate and cut a large incision down its length, then open it up as you would a jacket potato. Spoon over the dressing and garnish with the peanuts, crispy shallots and coriander leaves before serving.
