Anago Sushi – Conger eel (saltwater eel)

Anago is not raw sushi. Anago sushi is made from saltwater eel that has been broiled (most of the time). So it is cooked eel. They make it in maki-sushi style or handroll style with a sweet sauce brushed across the top.

The sweet sauce is normally made from a reduction of the eel sauce that is produced while it is cooking mixed with soy sauce, rice wine, and sugar.  A truly tasty flavor and once you have tasted it, you will keep coming back to this sushi.
