|CONGER EEL FROM BRIXHAM|
used to be a very popular fish years ago, no longer, which is a pity. It is a very nice fish to eat, takes a lot of cooking, and although it has bones they are very easy to see. The texture of the fish when cooked (bake for 35 minutes!) is creamy and it's a wonderful tasting fish, unlike no other. It's probably the name "eel" that puts people off! If you are worried about sustainability, the only way of catching them is with hook and line.
