you make me hungry.  My family has a long tradition of new years day breakfast 
being smoked eel served on scrambled egg on toast.  Sadly, for the last two 
years we have not been able to obtain eel, even at the delis that used to import 
them for the holidays.

The only eel I was able to locate in the local asian market was (I think) 
conger, and it does NOT smoke up like the rich oily delicious fish I remember.

Gwen hungry and whistful now Cat
who should be prepping for the weekend

Sorry to catch late with the eel topic! In Sweden we used to have a lot of
eels at the coast in Sk?ne and in the Atlantic Westcoast, but they are very
scarce now and the government is discussing to have laws banning the fishing
of eels at all. The eels dont find the way any longer to the Sargasso sea
where they mated and the specie is risking to become extint.
I dont know how is the situation at the US, if there are measures to protect
the eels.
In the island I often visit, ?stol, is only a fisherman left and he catches
eels and smoke them the traditional way. Nice to have them with scrambled
