      2. Angulas are my favorite delicacy. We discreetly refer to them as baby eels, when in fact they are unborn eel. Fresh in the US does not exist; fresh/frozen is scarce at about $50/ounce wholesale. I am unaware of any stateside restaurant that serves the fresh/frozen. The 4 oz. tins packed in olive oil have jumped from $50 to $80 in the last year. That is the best you can hope for, but prepared as you indicate are delicious.
