Spicy marinated  (eggplant)

Author Notes: after receiving lots of jalapenos from a friends garden, we tried them in one of our favorite eggplant preparations...

this dish is wonderful at room temp, tossed into salads, served with a piece of fish or a lamb chop...even served with some fresh mozzarella alongside.
