  • Once a staple of the American diet, the eel has, with the exception of upscale fusion restaurants and sushi houses, disappeared from our menus. In Consider the Eel, Richard Schweid reveals the eel's amazing natural history and opens our eyes to the global importance and demand for this curious fish by taking us from the coastal backwoods of America to England, Spain, China, Japan, and Italy-where the eel is a delicacy that can be found grilled, smoked, stewed, jellied, skewered, fried, baked, sautŽed, and even cooked into an omelet. In graceful prose, Schweid raises the eel from riverbed and pond bottom and serves up a delectable look at one of our oldest and least understood gifts from the sea.
