Eels!!!

An English mate here has coaxed me into trying eel pie!!!

A shipment was organised from a London deli and as I voiced my disgust at even the thought of it I was coaxed into getting one to try

As I return to hapless cook status this weekend I will try it soon and report my first tasting of this " delicacy "

Have any of you ever tried eels???

Re: Eels!!!

Horrid slimy stuff is the jellied variety, Suverners are welcome to em, smoked eel on the other hand was rather nice.

Re: Eels!!!

Dirty disgusting stuff, that and pie and mash ffs !

Why cant those southerners settle for classy dishes like pudding chips and gravy or fish chips mushy peas and curry.

Re: Eels!!!

I think pie mash and liquor are the devil's doing, and I'm sarf londoner! Looks like someone has sneezed over it. Never touched the stuff. And please don't get me chips and gravy, or chips and curry sauce!
Other half however loves jellied eels (or he did until I told I thought they were probably jellied turds from the Thames....he loves me for a reason, just not sure which one of my charms he fell for first!)

Re: Eels!!!

Imo lightly smoked unagi is best eaten as sushi beats tuna & salmon for me every time, nearly as good as raw sea urchin or live abalone (perlemon?).

Re: Eels!!!

I can do cod in batter , that is about it . As a kid being dragged up in Peckham we had Pie and eel shops everywhere , Harry Jacobs always had fresh eels in this fishmongers emporium , always looked slimy and still alive , not for little Stevie.

Re: Eels!!!

Dont think I could eat jellied but as a youngster I loved smoked eel when in Holland staying with relations. At that time they were dirt cheap but I believe now quite expensive.

Juco, they are just dirt dirty turd eaters. Give me steak pudding chips and gravy all day every day. (Babies head and chips)

And so are cod, halibut, bass, crabs, shrimp, sole, scallops, mussels etc etc.

They all taste good to me (as long as someone else cooks them )
