What Does Eel Taste Like?
There are two main camps into which eel falls: freshwater and saltwater. Freshwater eel is firmer in texture, with flesh that, when cooked, is reminiscent of lobster.
Saltwater Eel, in contrast, is less oily than its fresh counterpart; it’s also leaner with a milder finish. The flesh of the saltwater eel is softer in texture and boasts an almost sweet taste.
We love the tenderness of the saltwater eel and find its milder profile complements a wide range of flavors and food pairings, making these whole eels some of our favorites.
