Canned Eel?

pie22 | Jan 9, 201507:40 AM

I love Unagi Don or Eel Doburi or a basic Eel bowl, whatever it is called dependent on the place. Usually just broiled eel served over white rice in a sticky teriyaki (?) glaze and japanese pickles.
I have seen canned eel in the grocery store (Wegman's) and of course in Asian supermarkets. I want to buy it but must admit I am a little scared of it. How does it work? Can i take it out of the can and broil it with some teriyaki sauce to recreate my meal?
Any tips out there? Any brand recommendations (or ones to avoid)?
Thanks in advance!
