    4つの工程と特徴|仕入れ

    2.Handling

    4つの工程と特徴|捌き

    Mud around the eels is washed away. An Edo splitting knife is used for handling the eels. An eel is “butterflied” along the back Kanto (Tokyo)-style. This strengthens the outer side to prevent the eel from crumbling. It broils beautifully.

    3.Broiling

    4つの工程と特徴|焼き

    Fujiuna’s broiling method is Hakata style. A whole eel on skewers is roasted with high heat without steaming. Rubbing and patting (Konashi) make the eel crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    4.Sauce

    4つの工程と特徴|タレ

    A light sweet sauce emphasizes the good taste of the eel, despite its natural oiliness. The special flavor and added sauce become mellow and make the broiled eel perfect.

  • ◆ To maintain quality:
    For delicious and safe eel cuisine, each eel’s color is checked before purchasing. The color, the size of its liver, and whether bone is left are checked after handling. Finally, the taste is checked after broiling.
