Do you have to salt the eggplant first for eggplant Parmesan?
A word about salting the eggplant first. I have read so many opinions on the salt issue with eggplant. I’ll say this ~ for frying eggplant, I think it matters to salt first. It changes the texture and bitterness, making it creamier and more luscious. Almost every recipe I’ve seen for frying eggplant calls for salting it first, and that takes a couple of hours. No big deal, but adds time.
