Italian fried or grilled eel recipe

Italian fried or grilled eel recipe
Eel is a traditional part of La Vigilia di Natale, a seafood-focused Christmas Eve dinner, in many parts of Italy, especially in the southern Italian town of Naples, and often appears in the seven fish meals served by Italian-Americans. According to religious tradition, meat is not allowed on this night, leading to a feast featuring a variety of fish and seafood.
It can be grilled, grilled or fried. The recipe includes grilling and frying, while capitone arrosto, another traditional Italian Christmas Eve dish, is also available on the site. Eel meat has more oil than much other fish and is therefore perfect for grilling, although it is also easy to fry.
