    Peter J's Note:

    Adaptation of a recipe from the BBC website, I have made it easier to cook using more common ingredients. I really enjoyed it but please look at the ingredients before cooking - it certainly won't be a 'crowd pleaser' and has a quite strong and distinctive taste. It serves one as a large dish, or two as an entree / light meal.

      I did not have black bean paste, which is a shame, because the dish was so good without it that I can only imagine how great it would taste with it! I put a little more of everything, because I had more fish than the recipe asked for, and we finished all in minutes. I am now longing to try it with black bean paste. By the way, it was also very quick!

      We really enjoy eating Japanese eel at our favourite Japanese restaurant so hubby brought home an eel from a farmer who also had a fish shop. This recipe was easy to make and the directions were perfect. Hubby enjoyed the taste but I was too scared to eat the snake fish :). Thanks Peter for posting this recipe or I wouldn't know what to do with this eel.
