    So my fish guy started getting live eels from some Lough in the North. After some research, (mainly a bunch of YouTube videos on Japanese eel masters), I decided to go for it. I went and picked up some bricks to try and turn my BBQ into something that resembles a Hibachi. So here's my first attempt at Unagi Don.



    Darn. That looks great. I can catch eels but they are smaller than that. If i get a big one i may hit you up for more details. Way to go!

    The Asian market in Philly that I go to often has live eels. I don’t think they’re that big either and they didn’t have them when I was there today. Checked because of this post. I don’t think I could do it. Snakes freak me the fuck out and those are way too close. I’ll eat it, but I’m not touching those fuckers

    That was the bigger of the two. The other one was about half the size.

    They are pretty nasty, I won't lie. I asked my fish guy to prepare them- butterflied with spine removed. Here's a pic before I sliced them up and skewered them:

    charred pepper salsa. Using up the harvest. Those burnt up peppers add an awesome layer of flavor.

    Any suggestions as to what to cook with salsa? Thought about dumping some on roasting chicken. There is sugar in it, so not sure if it will burn.

    Huevos rancheros. Chilaquiles. Enchiladas.
