Unagi is a fresh water eel.  Cooked right, it is heaven on Earth.  And no this is different from Zanshin.



It is a mysterious creature that should probably be better studied as its habitat and mating and such is not well known.  It is also a declining species of fish.

I will say this though I am a huge fan of Unagi.  It tastes great.  I wouldn't really know how to describe it as it is a fish unlike all other.  It has a fluffy component to it when cooked correctly.  The sauce put on the unagi is usually a sweeter sauce.  Condiment often also associated with unagi is sanshou (Sichuan Pepper) which gives a slight numbing sensation to the tongue.
