Guess you dont like Sardines either.

 

Do Sardines taste like eels?

Who can say?  There are about two dozen species of fish that are called "sardines", about 800 different species of eel, and probably thousands of ways of preparing either.

 

Grilled sardines are a summer favorite, and unagi is a must-order when eating sushi.  Why are we resurrecting a six year old thread about fish?

Sometimes at Sushi I will order Unagi (eel). 

It is pretty nice actually. Worth a try.

There are Unagi (freshwater) and Anago (saltwater). They are also eaten by many other cultures.

I laughed when I saw this thread pop up again, I used to be a fish cutter and had to deal with these rather snake-like vial disgusting creatures... They do taste good once smoked but I have memories of having to kill and skin hundreds of pounds of these every Christmas.  I would get 50 gallon barrels filled with live swimming eels. We would then reach in, grab one, which are covered in a thick gell-like skum that wreaks. Then you would put them on a cutting board, they would wrap their bodies around your arm as you hit them on the head with a club-like hammer, then slit their throats, sever their back bone, and then peeled off the skin.  Rather brutal and disgusting.  the smell would remain on you..........

But it's not very nice to mention it. (Smiley face.)

I like the word elver, which is a young eel, or a migration of young eels, and is now obsolete. I've never eaten one, neither eel nor migration, nor word of course.

For three grand you can probably get a stainless euro style appliance that you can put on your soapstone countertop and which will butcher eels perfectly for you every time. Can I have an iced skinny caramel unagi with skin, please? Yum.

Anyone who knows anything about unagi also knows that the Eel Skin Peeler should be separate from the rest of the Eelorator since that part is the most important and is most likely to break and totally ruin the unagi.;)
