Fugu--before you eat, know your chef! | All about water, the oceans, environmental issues | Scoop.it

Most people don't consider the possibility of death a reality during their daily meal, but for those eating fugu, it's something that must be considered. Fugu is a Japanese pufferfish that contains enough poison to kill 30 people. The chefs who prepare this expensive Japanese delicacy must undergo years of training. Served in a stew, grilled or as paper-thin sashimi, any small mistake in preparation could mean an untimely end to the consumer. Those wishing to try this deadly delicacy should visit Japan during October to March when fugu is in season.
