Why do people bungee jump? Why do people drive around in high speed cars? It is the same reason why you would try puffer fish...

Puffer fish is one of the most poisonous fish in the world, and it can only be prepared by licensed chefs who have passed the official exams. It is interesting to note that Puffer fish (Fugu) is also officially forbidden to be consumed by the Emperor of Japan, for his own safety (For more interesting information about puffer fish (fugu), check out this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugu)

Puffer fish has always intrigued me, so I thought a good way to start was by trying some at the supermarket...yes...they even sell it in supermarkets in Japan! I tried Puffer fish Sashimi...the meat was white and quite clear. Once I put the sliver of fish in my mouth, I began to understand why the Japanese loved this fish so much. The texture was quite meaty, sweet and tasty; it tasted very refreshing. All I can say is yum, yum, yum!

Next time I am in Japan, I want to try the puffer fish banquet...why not? Of all places in the world, I personally believe Japan is the safest place to eat puffer fish!

Here's a video I found showing the cutting and preparation of a puffer fish (fugu):
