    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.
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 5,332
    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.

    Don't use it enough, usually only on the weekends. Tend to use my grill more. Highly recommend, however. The cheesesteaks come out amazing.

    Tuscan night! Ribollita and some delicious Chianti Classico from my Italy wine guy

    Common problem with all cooking tools.  Have a Weber smokey mountain and maybe use it three times a year.  Criminal.

    I am making a spicy vegetarian coconut curry with potatoes, carrots, peas, cauliflower, and peppers. I found the recipe in this old 1970s vegetarian cookbook. It still has to simmer for a while so the veggies get soft, but so far it smells really good. 
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 5,332
    If it can make cauliflower smell good nice work. I love those older cookbooks. I think I have one from 1930s with beaver recipe. Turtle stew. Lot's of things I'll never cook. Fun to pull more familiar recipes out of there.  I'm not trapping any beaver or killing a turtle. Today anyway.

    I’m not a huge fan of rice - especially with potatoes. Lots of carbs. But I did make some whole grain couscous to put some over. It was ok. I like it better without. But the curry itself came out great. Half of it is now in my freezer.
