I've served eel at Japanese themed dinners.  It is available in Asian 
markets here in Denver under the name of unagi.  It comes pre-cooked 
in sauce and just needs to be warmed up.  It is very rich; you don't 
want to eat much at a time.  I think I remember eating stewed eel at 
an SCA feast a very long time ago.  Liked it, but did not get seconds.
