#812 Eating grilled eel in hot summer gets me energy

To eat grilled eel in hot summer is popular in Japan from a long time ago. It is because eels have good nutritions like vitamin A and B.

I went to my parents’ home in Chiba for obon holiday.

Since eel cuisine at restaurant is sort of expensive, we went to buy grilled eels without seasoning at fish shop.

We bought 2 grilled eels. Each grilled eel costed 2100 yen.

There were also fresh loaches and crayfish in the buckets at the shop.

The shop staff gave us a recipe on how to make delicious eel.

After we got home, my mom steamed the eels with sweet soy sauce.

Then we ate the cooked eel on rice. The three of us shared two eels.

It was so delicious! I like “sansho” seasoning on the top of eels. It smells really good, too.
I really enjoyed eating eels with my parents this obon holiday.

やっぱり夏にはウナギだねー。
夏じゃなくても食べたいけど、冬のウナギって聞かないものね。

たまには、鰻が食べたくなりますね。
土用の丑の日は年に6.09日あるらしいです(Wikiより)
私は冬だって鰻食べたくなりますよ。
そうそうお正月の成田山参道は鰻屋さんから煙が出ていて、お参りに来ている人を誘惑しています。
でも食べると生き返るのは、ダンゼン夏です!
