Angulas - Eel Appeal

We spoke about the jellied eels supplied by M. Manze recently. Hopping over to the continent and the eels start to get a lot smaller. The Spanish are crazy about the elver or young eels, which are known as angulas there. Whenever I make a visit I always make sure I bring a couple of tins back - usually from El Pescador de Arosa. The Fish Society stock them in the UK when they can get hold of them.

Crazy About the Elver

The tiny eels are packed with olive oil and small chillies to enhance the flavour.

Delicious cooked with spaghetti or on toasted bread with mayonnaise.
