The Japanese word for freshwater eel is 'unagi.' Freshwater eels, like other marine eels, are popular in Japanese cuisine. Anago is the name for the saltwater eel kind. The soft, fatty meat of unagi is valued for its robust, rich flavor. It is primarily grown from May to October, and is considered a summer meal by the Japanese because of its high vitamin and mineral content, which is said to provide vitality, especially in hot weather.
Eels are always served cooked in Japan. Because of the eel's rich, fatty flavor, it's frequently served with lighter, more subtle dishes to balance off the meat's richness. Ground sansho pepper, a Japanese pepper with a strong herbal flavor, is a favourite eel seasoning because it cuts through the fatty flavor. Unagi is served in tempura and sushi restaurants, as well as unagiya (specialty restaurants).
Eels are popular in Japan, but they are also popular in the United States, Europe, New Zealand, China, and Korea. Their meaty, oil-rich, and distinctly strong flavor are particularly popular in Japan, where natural, healthy, and sustainable foods are valued. Eels are thought to boost stamina and body renewal, especially in the summer, as well as vigor and energy, particularly in the elderly. These assertions are based on the fish's incredible nutritional content.
It is not an exaggeration to say that eel is high in vitamins and minerals. Eel is thought to have the highest amount of unsaturated fatty acids of any sea creature, and is abundant in protein, omega-3, vitamin E, calcium, vitamin A, and phosphorus, among other nutrients. The omega-3 fatty acid found in unagi may aid to manage blood pressure, preserve bone health, and possibly relieve menstrual pain. This, together with vitamin A, is thought to help minimize wrinkles and keep skin smooth.
We've been in the eel industry since 2009, when we began exporting frozen roasted eel fillets (Unagi Kabayaki) to Russia.
Then we are spreading our operations into new countries. We can also supply frozen gutted eel, roasted eel sushi slices, and other similar products in addition to roasted eel fillets.
