Unagi Kimo (Eel Liver) うなぎ肝
Eel liver is even more nutritious than eel flesh, and quite tasty too!
Sprinkled with sansho, grilled eel liver, or unagi kimo kabayaki is an excellent tsumami (snack, hors d’oeuvres) and goes extremely well with beer!
In a more gourmet application, a single eel liver is also served in Kyoto’s delicate and subtly flavored sumashi soup.
Unagi is very nutritious, but unagi kimo is even more so. Eel liver contains lots of vitamins, calcium and iron. Eel liver contains twice as much vitamin A as eel flesh.
We always try to cook a nice meal at home on Saturday night but today we were really tired from the summer heat and work, so at the grocery store we picked up some eel liver for a re-energizing and tasty snack before we started to prepare dinner.
Opps, we forgot the sansho sprinkling for the picture.
Unagi Kimo and Beer
Actually, we split this portion, this would be a lot for just one person.
