Actually, I don't.  Freshwater eel is more something that you fish for 
yourself rather than buy, and there are limits to my enthusiasm.  Eel 
enthusiasts frequently smoke or barbecue them, and when someone has any, 
they tend to get eaten with great gusto.

I like the Japanese-style BBQ stuff, as well.  With rice and pickles.
