Jang-uh Gui
Broiled / Grilled Eel
장어구이

 

Jang uh gui is a great Korean seafood dish using fresh water eel as the main ingredient.  This dish can be prepared in various ways in which can be broiled and/or grilled to achieve its distinctive tastes & flavors.  Some may choose to do both, first broiling the eel then grilling it to achieve the ultimate perfection in texture and color. To prepare the dish, bones are removed from the eel then marinated with a sweet and tangy sauce which includes rice wine, gochugaru (red chili pepper flakes), sesame oil, soy sauce garlic, sugar and ginger.  When cooking, additional sauce may be consistently brushed onto the fish to add extra flavors & aroma.

This meal is rich in protein, calcium, vitamin A and E and enjoyed especially during the hot summers to avoid heat exhaustion.  It is also believed to be good for stamina.

Fact: Eel have high content in protein and fat so it can take a long time to fully digest this fish.
