- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- ++ If you plan to fry your Eel ++

To make grilled eel:
Grill the pieces over a medium flame for about a half hour, turning them frequently and basting them with olive oil.
To make fried eel:
Do not skewer the pieces, but rather sprinkle them with oil and dot them with pieces of bay leaf. Once they have marinated roll the fish in flour and fry the pieces in moderately hot oil until they are browned and crunchy on the outside. Drain them well on absorbent paper and salt them.
A wine? White, and Greco di Tufo would be nice.
Yield: 4-6 servings grilled or fried eel.
