Unagi (fresh water eel)
Sun, 03/25/07 10:11 AM
I didn't find the subject mentioned in the Forums. Hope, I'm not repeating, but has anyone had experience with Unagi?
A friend of mine gave me a package of frozen, cleaned fresh-water eel that he purchased at an Asian market.
He claims it is really good "properly prepared." When I asked him the best way to prepare it he said "Google it" ... which meant he probably didn't know either.
There are some recipes on the net, but I would prefer to hear from someone who has actually cooked or eaten it.
Man, those are NASTY looking critters when they're alive, but if the Japanese like them they must be worth trying.
Of course, they (the Japanese) eat blowfish too, don't they?
