I remember my flesh eating days, and one of my favorite things was sushi. Not just any sushi, I wanted that BBQ eel. Seeing as veganism doesn't allow the consumption of eels (or any sea food) I have gone without. Until now. Alton Brown is my hero, he didn't create this recipie, but he DID bring it to my attention.

MOCK EEL

serves one (maybe more, but I'm a teenage boy so I eat a lot....)

2 portabella mushrooms
1.5tbs soy sauce
1tbs bottled General Tsao's Sauce
.5 tsp cayanne pepper (or to taste)
.5 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp brown sugar
water
oil

Ok, So get your mushrooms and remove the stems, leaving the tops whole and relatively un-maimed.
Put them in a large bowl, and cover with water (they'll float but its ok)
Soak overnight

the next day........

Use the sprayer and blast the crap out of those mushroom caps. GET 'EM CLEAN!
Now thinly slice the caps so you have lots of long relatively flat "fillets".
Score the fillets to make them flakey, like this </ / / / / / >
Heat like a .5 tbsp of oil in a skillet, get that sucker screaming hot.
Add your fillets, and leave em! Let them do the beautiful seary-caramelizy thing! Toss a little bit (make sure they don't burn)
Take your pan off the heat, add your soy sauce, ginger, cayanne, sugar, Tsao's Sauce, and like 2 tbsp of water.
Toss to combine, return to heat and let it come up to a rapid sizzle, then cover, lower heat, and let braise for about ten minutes.

Serve over rice with veggies and ENJOY!

Ha mine too, she hates when I cook.

There are no reasons to not go vegan, only excuses.

You honestly must, lol. I reccomend you use a low sodium soy sauce, it can be too salty if you dont.

The soy and general tsao's sauce are some pretty strong flavors, along with the ginger.

Mmmmmm, how much trouble can I cause with this...

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
