I do really love the taste of river eel and that matches with green herbs really good to our health most specially to our tummy.
I did this recipe and it was a mess, for the butter and cream should not be included in here! It tasted so bland and it’s very watery!

I had a hard time looking for garden eels on the market. I really don’t know where to find one. I am so excited to make this recipe because eel is an exotic food right? And this would be my very first exotic recipe try. Basing from all the comments and reviews, I know this recipe will surely be a good one.

I may like this recipe but the green herbs distract me. I think they should separate the green herbs and not pour it to the dish. It looks like slim that it could lose our appetite.
This dish is not good! The combination of the ingredients is quite bad. I don't like the mixture of white wine, cream, lemon, and the taste of the river eel -- really awful. I tried my best to make it perfect, but it seems it really turned out not good! You have to revise this recipe!
Ouch, what do you mean boil by half? I boiled it all the way. And I found myself cooking the whole recipe for a long time. Plus, I did not understand the instruction about “a drop of lemon juice”. I told myself, what’s the point of adding lemon juice if it’s just a drop. So I cut a lemon in two then used one slice for the juice. The recipe still tastes like food, though.

When I watched the video and saw the green sauce, I thought I would never try this. But the eel was very tempting because I've never had any before. To my surprise, the creamy green sauce was so full of flavors. The consistency of the eel made for a very elegant presentation.
This is actually a very tasty and much sought after dish in Europe. For sophisticated palates, as well as the adventurous ones. It's like eating caviar... Children with well-developed eating habits would love it!!

The hardest part of making this is dealing with the eel when you’re not very fond of them. The other matters would be fine for as long as you follow what’s presented or you know what you’re doing. For the flavor, it’s pretty much incomparable to usual dishes and I’m not too good at explaining such things. What I can assure you, however, is it’s good. I think most people would appreciate how it tastes and some might even find it a new discovery for their taste buds.
I have never enjoyed eel quite like I did with this recipe. The steps are presented nicely; I never had to backtrack to check if I did something correctly or if I did it at all. The ingredients are easy to find, you can make it anytime you crave for it.

This kind of recipe is really exotic! I like the great combination of herbs that has been added to river eel. Not only that the river eel has a different taste from the other fish, really delectable! I will surely recommend this to my other friends who loves eating exotic food.
What a dish for an eel recipe! It was all integrated systematically. The video was comprehensible enough that it wouldn’t confuse viewers. And that if they missed out they can just replay it or just follow the steps written below the video, that was really helpful and genius. And the first thing that I noticed with the ingredients is that they are all organic. And that they are very accessible to everyone and they are mostly available year round!
