Eel (grilled)

In Japan, eel is a delicacy and eaten there very gladly. As you cannot eat eel raw it is grilled. The following recipe shows a simple possibility to do so.

Grilled eel


  • Eel fillets
  • 3 parts rice wine
  • 1 part sugar


For the marinade mix three parts rice wine with one part sugar. Cut the eel fillets into two or three pieces. Grill at first the skinned side, eventually the other side. Steam the pieces about 5 minutes over intense heat and spread on the marinade. While finally grilling the eel once more, spread marinade on.
