For the roasted aubergine, simply take a large one. Slice it in half. Lengthwise. Make a diamond pattern cut without reaching the skin. Salt and keel aside for a few minutes. Squeeze out the release water. Stuff garlic and chilly pieces.
For the fish. Pat it dry. Make some slits. Stuff in the lemon, garlic, chilly and dill leaves. Wrap up the fish inside aluminium foil. It should be very loosely packed but no openings in the foil. Note that we did not add any salt to the fish.
Wrap the top of a baking tray with foil. Place the aubergine pieces (skin side up) on one side. Keep the sealed fish beside it.
Into a preheated oven for 40 minutes at 180C. Remove. Let it cool for 5 miutes. Open the fish packet. Flip the aubergine. Back into the oven with just top heat for about 8 minutes.
