Eel-Eat Week

As Eel Week draws to a close the reception to the initiative in Oysters was phenomenal!

Many customers who had never tried eel before took this opportunity to delve into their adventurous side and they were not disappointed.

Eel-Eat originated from Lough Neagh Partnership in association with the Lough Neagh Fisherman’s Co-Operative and supported and promoted throughout Northern Ireland by Tourism NI and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council,  running from Saturday 25th June to Saturday 2nd July.

The aim of Eel-Eat was to encourage residents, local businesses and visitors to try Lough Neagh eels in support of the local fishing industry within the area.

Oysters put together a dish comprising of ‘Smoked Eel with Sautéed Potatoes, Buttered Leaks and a Watercress Veloute.’
