This is about half
It was very good
Soft smooth buttery texture, sweet bbq like flavor.
Almost like bbq chicken mixed with pulled pork.

I plan to grab some more when i am back in that area, i liked this.

No jelly? No pie? ...no mash??? :o

I fear my English neighbo(u)rs would be shocked :lol:

Doesn't look bad at all, next time I go to Paris (300 miles East), I'll check for this at Tang Brothers' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tang_Fr%C3%A8res

Is it about that particular "Roasted Eel" or fish in a can at all as this is available everywhere over here in all kinds:

Fish in a can not so special

We have mackerel, tuna, salmon, anchovies, sardines, mussels,clams, shrimp in a can that are pretty normal.

Eel, Squid, octopus, in a can not so normal/common

"Pulpo ( octopus) y calamares en su tinta(squid in ink)".... those are tasty but very rare to find here in the US. I get it from the "care packages" from my folks in Puerto Rico. We get them mostly from Spain.
