American Unagi Smoked Eel has a satisfying combination of umami flavors and is rich in Vitamin A and D.
This American eel is hot smoked using a traditional European recipe of oak and alder wood. The high natural fat content of our eels, paired with a salt brine and rich smoke flavor, creates a savory, delicate, and versatile product.
American Unagi - Maine Eel Farmers
Traditionally, Maine's glass eels would be exported to Asia to be grown. Then several years later imported back to the US-- after being raised in unknown conditions with questionable additives. Sadly, most eels you eat will have circumnavigated the globe on some unknown path to your plate.
American Unagi eels are sourced exclusively from Maine's well-managed fishery, raised in land-based aquaculture systems located on the coast of Maine. The eels are fed a high-quality diet, without the use of hormones or antibiotics.
Our Maine Smoked Eel is available in 4-ounce vacuum-packed portions.
Please note that this product ships frozen but may defrost in transit. The product may arrive partially thawed.
