Hot Stuff: Cookbook in praise of the piquant - book has great recipes

I bought this book in paperback after 1985 (copyright 1985). This tiny book has 307 pages and a nice index. It was a small book then but now is a hardcover. But I really like many of the recipes. This author, Jessica B. Brown knows here stuff.
Recently I tried

a Morrocan dish called Saalouk Salad. Easy to make I made the dish which has has eggplant (I used Japanese long eggplants which my wife found were less bitter then regular eggplants ; garlic salt, paprika, tomatoes, and red hot chilies (I used red pepper flakes). It normally used zucchini but I left those out. Nice dish, not to fussy to make at and has a nice flavor and little kick to it. Great side dish.
PS if you want the full recipe contact me and I will post it on the blog for everyone
