Product Description: 

Our Jellied Eels Mini Bowl brings a slice of London’s culinary heritage right to your table. For over 69 years, Bradley’s has been perfecting this traditional East End delicacy, and we’re proud to offer you a taste of this iconic dish. Each mini bowl contains approximately 18 pieces of tender, wild-caught eel, simmered in a spiced stock and set in a savoury jelly.

Originating in the eighteenth century, jellied eels became a beloved staple among London’s working class, found in the eel, pie, and mash houses that dotted the East End. The dish is a testament to British resilience and creativity in making the most of locally available ingredients.

We offer this delicacy, either fresh or occasionally frozen, providing convenience for any time of year. If you receive the frozen version, simply remove the lid and microwave on full power for 6-8 minutes or until it reaches boiling point. Let it set in the fridge for 4 hours before enjoying it. For the freshest experience, consume within 48 hours.

Jellied eels are not just about tradition—they’re a nutritious choice. Eel meat is low in fat but high in protein, making it an excellent option for those monitoring their weight. It’s also low in cholesterol, which is beneficial for heart health. The liver of the eel is rich in Vitamin A and essential amino acids, contributing to overall well-being. In some cultures, eel is even believed to promote youthfulness.

Serve your jellied eels with crusty bread and a drizzle of Bradley’s signature chilli vinegar to capture the authentic London experience. This dish is perfect for a nostalgic meal or to introduce others to a classic British taste.
