You know how the cans of eel you can get at Asian markets are tough and gnarly and almost candied? That’s not what this is. At all. This is like if lox were thick-cut bacon.  An astoundingly good tin of fish. We are positively gobsmacked. Knocked out. Wowed.

6 oz tin.

Gulf of Maine Conservas Smoked Eel in Olive Oil pctured with herbed cream cheese on toast, garnished with pickled shallots and parsley.

    This tin of eel is an experience. While there are many tins deserving of 5 star reviews, this one needs a 5+ option to represent how much of a stand out it is.

    Opening the tin presents an aroma of gentle smoke and a visual palette of golden brown and light caramel filet pieces suspended in olive oil. I found bite and mouthful sized bits of filet and a shallow lining of minced bits at the bottom of the can.

    On its own, the eel is a strong, flavorful bite – sweet, mild fish, salt, smoke, fat. Mixed with a bit of rice, it’s sublime, with the layers of flavors combined with the array of soft and firm textures, with a trailing sense of the fat lingering on the tongue, there’s not much that could make this better but for a bit of acid to cut through the fattiness.

    Yes, this tin is a splurge. Yes, it is worth it.
