Puffer Fish, Anyone?

The majority of puffer fish species are toxic and some are among the most poisonous vertebrates in the world. In certain species, the internal organs, such as liver, and sometimes their skin, contain tetrodotoxin and are highly toxic to most animals when eaten. There is no antidote for puffer fish toxicity. Nevertheless, the meat of some species is considered a delicacy in Japan and a flirt with death.

Personally, I have not tasted this fish before. Friends who have told me that there’s nothing special about it. I guess you only get bragging rights and Instagram content. Yay! I’ve done puffer fish.

Chan’s Homemade Bread

The ingredients are exactly the same as that for pizza crust. I had a dash of salt and sugar added to flour and water, rolled into a dough with a packet of baker’s yeast.

The crust is a bit hard, but the inside is wonderfully soft. It exudes a wonderful aroma when hot.

Butterfly Cut White Fish

You won’t believe where this fish comes from. It’s a freshwater fish hails from Lake Toba and it tastes nothing like sutchi or pangasius.

It’s really simple to prepare. Just season with salt and black pepper, fry on both sides and drizzle a bit of lime juice over it. Tastes superb but costs quite a bit more than glamorised Mekong catfish.
