The word “unagi” started out as a general Japanese term for freshwater eels. Over time, though, it became recognized on the international scene as the name for a particular variety of eel found in Japan and parts of Korea and China. This eel is popular in Japanese cooking, and often eaten during the hot summer months as a way to replenish nutrients and boost vitality.
