Making Anago Nanbanzuke

This video shows how to make Anago Nanbanzuke.

Conger eel (anago) is known to come from Nagasaki, Shimane, and Aichi prefectures. Summer conger eel has little fat and is more refreshing, while winter conger eel is rich in fat, making it a hearty dish that is becoming increasingly popular.
Conger eel is often eaten as a substitute for regular eel, but some people prefer conger eel because it's lower in calories and has a more refreshing flavor than normal eel.

In the video, they make nanbanzuke (roasted or deep-fried fish or meat, marinated in a spicy sauce) using conger eel.
