This recipe provides an excellent balance of nutrients. Rich in complex carbohydrates and protein, the addition of a side salad creates a deliciously healthy gourmet meal.
Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of fresh or defrosted peas during the last 2 minutes of cooking to add healthy variety to this carbohydrate-based dish.
Instead of the white wine and lemon zest, you can add verjuice, a recently revived medieval ingredient available in some supermarkets and independent gourmet stores. It adds a strong fruity flavour to this dish that helps to cut through the richness of the eel.
