Fugu, or more commonly known as puffer fish, is known in mainstream TV as the food (one of many, FYI) that nearly killed Homer Simpson. When not prepared properly, puffer fish is an extremely dangerous fish to eat, containing a high dose of textrodotoxin that can kill a person within hours of ingesting it. Leave it to the Japanese to make an impeccable preparation though. Just look at these perfect slivers of fugu sushi.
3. Bat Paste Soup
Eating bat paste soup is probably a hard idea to sell, considering bats are stinky, hairy, and eerie creatures, but bats are considered a luxurious delicacy in Asian countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Bat paste soup is prepared by boiling the animal in milk then mashing it into a gooey paste and then seasoning with herbs and spices.
