When you fry it—fry it properly, that is—eggplant becomes really crispy on the outside and very creamy on the inside. It’s an addictive snack—almost a variation of French fries—and goes really well with salmorejo. Like other Spanish fried foods, this is especially good because it uses great Spanish olive oil.
Heat the olive oil to 365°F in a large deep skillet. Beat the eggs in a wide shallow bowl. Put the bread crumbs in another shallow bowl. Working in batches, dip the eggplant in the eggs and then in the bread crumbs, turning to coat, and add to the hot oil, without crowding. Fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with salt, and serve.
