Get this wrong, and the consequences are deadly.

This is pufferfish and pufferfish are lethally poisonous if not prepared correctly.

Despite this, fugu has become one of the most celebrated Japanese dishes.

A Japanese chef must undergo rigorous training and certification before he is allowed to prepare the fish for human consumption.

Fugu is normally prepared in such a way that a tiny amount of poison is left in the fish, as the poison gives it a slightly numbing and tingling effect.

A full-course fugu meal will start at $100 per person.
