Arrange the layered eggplant slices in a colander, sprinkling each layer with a little salt, then cover them with a plate and a weight on top, so that they lose the bitterness.

After about an hour of rest, rinse them, dry them and lightly flour them on both sides.

Put the chopped shallots and the oil in a pan and when it is hot add the aubergines, then brown them on one side.

Turn the eggplants over, sprinkle them with the breadcrumbs and the chopped mushrooms.

Stir, season with a little pepper, and salt if necessary, then cook for about fifteen minutes over high heat.

Place the dome-shaped aubergines on a tray, sprinkle them with lemon juice and sprinkle them with finely chopped parsley.
