Unagi. The Ten Footer.

There isn't enough Hoisin sauce in the world.

This beast was caught in a creek in the Poukawa Valley out Te Hauke ways, my step-dads stomping grounds. IN A CREEK. The guy who caught it, netted in the 10 footer only to throw him back into the creek.

Eel is like lamb, the smaller the better.
Pretty sure they're bigger out these ways.
PS. No soup today. I'm having eel (really).

That's amazing.
I like how it's just looking back like it's posing for the picture nicely.
It's been a long time since I've had smoked eel.
