Fantastic Firsts -Spaghetti and Lacquered Eel, Chef Francesco Sposito, Taverna Estia (Na)

I have to admit I was curious.  Very curious.  After seeing photos shared by friends on various social networks, I decided it was my turn.  My turn to head back to Taverna Estia in Brusciano (Na) and try Chef Francesco Sposito's fantastic first - his spaghetti with lacquered eel. The name alone spikes interest and I waited patiently until the dish arrived after a series of amazing appetizers.
Spaghetti cooked al dente-firm to the bite- in tomato water.  It was topped with flax seeds and Greek basil.  A small serving that has a big punch filling your mouth with a series of  persistent flavors of the tomato and basil.  On each side of the rectangular shaped plate were two pieces of eel.  Strawberry lacquered eel.
A combination that for me was a first...
...that for me was fantastic.
