Japanese eggplants have a naturally smoky flavor, but if you cant find them, regular eggplants work too. The eggplant slices can also be cooked on a countertop grill (such as George Foreman) or broiled in the oven.
Preheat outdoor grill or set stovetop grill on medium heat. Cut each eggplant lengthwise into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Brush slices with olive oil.
Mix tomatoes, 2 Tbs. oil, basil, shallot, capers and vinegar in medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill eggplants 5 minutes on each side for outdoor grill, 5 minutes total for countertop grill, or until tender and scored with dark grill marks. Arrange eggplant slices on platter. Spoon tomato mixture over top, and serve.
