Lamproie a la Bordelaise is one of the best classical dishes in Bordeaux cuisine. Lamprey is a type of big sea-snake, reminiscent of an eel, found in waters off the Atlantic coast of Europe. It is eaten primarily in the Bordeaux region of France and in parts of Portugal. Lamproie a la Bordelaise is cooked in its own blood with red wine and stewed with leeks.

Lamprey's delicate flesh has been highly appreciated since the time of the Romans. Quite popular throughout Europe in the Middle Ages, legend has it that The King Henry I of England died after a lamprey indigestion.
