In Videos: Cutting of Blowfish (Fugu) in Japan


If a specially licensed Japanese chef doesn't correctly cut fugu—a potentially fatally poisonous blowfish—he could kill the diner. If you ever order fugu, just hope your chef is as skilled as the one above.

Watch the fugu go from whole fish to plated dish after the jump. A warning for the squeamish: The fish is prepared while it's still alive. [via growabrain]
