Eels?

Well, now that I've just criticized catfish, I'm wondering if anyone here's eaten freshwater eel before? I know they're quite highly prized in many parts of the world... But definitely not so here in North America.

Are we missing something good?

that's "unagi". it's fairly common now and easy to find actually, in either in asian markets or asian sections of supermarkets. it's a staple at every sushi bar as well.

Thanks guys! Jeez, now I regret having thrown back dozens of the little buggers over the years.
