Fugu - Blowfish Cuisine | Translucent Fugu Sashimi

Fugu, Japanese pufferfish, is known for its risky poisonous nature, but is a common delicacy in Japan when prepared correctly. Fugu contains tetrodotoxin, a poison, in its organs. When preparing a fugu dish, whatever it may be, it is important the chef knows how to handle and cut the fish properly. Fugu is most commonly enjoyed as sashimi, cut extremely thinly. The technique of cutting fugu into these thin translucent slices is called usuzukuri. Fugu hot pots are also popular in the winter time.
