Eels In Piquant Sauce

4 lb Eel
1 tb Olive oil
1 tb Paprika
2 c Hot water
3 Garlic cloves; chopped
14 Blanched almonds
2 tb Chopped fresh parsley
1/4 ts Saffron
1 tb Olive oil
Salt to taste


Clean and skin eels and cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a casserole or skillet, add paprika, and stir in enough water to cover eels. Bring to a boil and add pieces of eel. Meanwhile with a mortar and pestle or in an electric blender crush garlic, almonds, parsley, and saffron with enough olive oil to make a smooth paste. Stir mixture into casserole, add salt to taste, and cook for about 20 minutes or until eels are done. Add more water if sauce thickens. Serve hot.
