Unagi (eel) is a great way for non-fish eaters to make the transition to trying fish! It is eaten cooked and usually teriyaki flavored, and has a subtle fish flavor. This is one of the more traditional rolls that can be found in most sushi restaurants. Unagi can be found frozen at Japanese supermarkets. It is so yummy yummy yummy!! I hope you like the sweet salty flavor of the unagi with the crunch of the cucumber as much as I do! And, as always, let me know if you have any suggestions for future posts!
