interestingly....

....someone showed me some pics the other day of eels which they jellied and ate. However, I did point out that 2 of the four supposed eels were butterfish. He said they tasted ok - not sure I have ever seen a recipe for these guys.

good'un

That is a good'un Graham. I suppose they MUST taste very similar and Butterfish must have been on everyone's menu here in historical times.
I am about to post up an eel-lookalike that is almost certainly a butterfish.
