The trick here is to briefly brine the eel. A fisherman’s wife would gently lick a piece of eel to check whether it is salty enough. Tasting the brine before you add the eel will do just as well…
1. Soak the pieces of eel in a light brine (salted water) for about 20 minutes, then dry thoroughly with kitchen towels or cloth.
2. Heat up the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and mix the flour and white pepper onto a plate.
3. When the oil is hot, dip the portions of eel in the flour, shaking to remove excess flour and gently drop in the frying pan. Do not over crowd the pan and turn the pieces of eel several time until they get a golden colour. Do not be afraid of over frying, eel is fairly fatty and will be able to take it.
4. Remove the pieces of eel and dry them on kitchen towels and serve immediately.
