Live Eel: how should i cook it?

I found live eel at a small Asian market where I'm staying for the summer and I think I just might have to try it out. The only question is how.

How to prepare it, and what to pair it with. The only sad thing, though, is I don't have a grill, so those options are out (sadface).

All information is welcome, because I know nothing about eel besides eating it a couple of times in sushi.
