According to the Unagi Kabayaki specification

Our Unagi is farmed in China and Taiwan. After harvesting the eel is prepared using the Kabayaki technique. This means that we split the fish along its back and remove the guts and bones. The eel is then butterflied, grilled and/or roasted. We then marinate the eel in the sweet Kabayaki soya marinade.

Our freshwater eel is supplied in butterfly fillets with 20% Kabayaki sauce. You can use Unagi as topping for sushi (nigiri or tamaki) or in a bowl.
