Recipe = Anago for Sushi or Donburi on 10Aug2018

anago

experiment making anago (conger eel) first time..

anago very ex in jap restaurant..saw in sheng shiong a fillet piece S$3+

googled recipe and found one at umamimart here.

i fillet (cut away from the bones) so i had 2 fillet pieces, and cleaned with salt.

decided to make my own braising stock concoction below-

added 500ml water, 2tsp sugar, 1/2tsp salt, 2tbsp sake, 1 tbsp tsuyu, 1 tbsp white vinegar

i decided to add the cleaned fish bones into the stock.

added drop lid using aluminium foil. this was to ensure the anago fillet were evenly braised by the stock….

boiled low fire 20mins, removed & dry in fridge then ziploc for use..for sushi or donburi…

reduced stock further, discarded the fish bones, kept the sticky sauce for use..

i tried a piece.

added the sticky reduced sauce on the anago. it was ok, pretty good, just no real comparison with the very nice anago at jap restaurants. not sure i can improve it to anywhere near actually. maybe it was the anago fillet that was somehow different. seems thicker somehow…
