Posting this from my mum’s PC on a camp site in Spain (it’s pouring with rain now, (mostly on the plain))…
We visited an excellent covered market the other day and the seafood stalls were simply amazing. Most items I recognised, but there was one that was a bit of a mystery. It was a big containter of what appeared to be tiny translucent fish or eels - completely pale white in colour with two little black eyes.
I’ve seen people eating elvers (baby eels) before, but they were bigger than this, and darker.
What are these things? Also, how should I serve them? I’m thinking that they might be nice dredged in seasoned flour and plunged briefly into hot oil.
