Raucheraal (Smoked Eel) ? Tue, 07/28/09 7:31 PM (permalink)
Moin Forum!

Räucheraal is a german delicacy here in Northern Germany, especially in our Ammerland county, and in my hometown Bad Zwischenahn. The worldwide best smoked eel is produced by our local company Aal-Bruns.

Back in the early 1900s, smoked eel was cheap food for the poor people, nowadays smoked eel is a very costly delicacy, the same as with Matjes-Hering.

Is smoked eel known over in the USA, did you ever taste it?  An american friend visited us many years ago, we invited Jim and his wife to a smoked eel dinner, in a trad. local restaurant, located in a several hundred years old farmhouse, close to our Zwischenahner Meer. Jim and his wife looked at the platter of smoked eels, asking: "What is it, smoked rattlesnake...???"

After telling Jim, it was a local seafood delicacy, Jim ate up 3! smoked eels, he was exited about this stuff...

The best place in the world to enjoy trad. german smoked eel.

Here a photo of Der Spieker (The Storage)

This building is over 500 years old, a part of our local "Museumsdorf", and the Spieker-Restaurant inside this building is known by fans all over the world, for the best smoked eel, and the worldwide best Bauernfrühstück (Farmers Breakfast)

CU in Germany!
