Eel soup



This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more!


Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all!

  3. Another healthy soup! I remember my grandma used to made this eel soup when I was a little girl but I've never try to make this myself because I'm afraid of eel, looks very slippery.
