All the famous chefs of the world unanimously say that the guarantee of a delicious dish is the quality of the products used. By quality, we all first of all mean freshness. But, you see, fresh does not mean alive. Although many people clearly think otherwise. Indeed, some animals are literally eaten alive. And so, we bring to your attention a list of the most sadistic dishes in the world.
The word Ikizukuri translated from Japanese means "cooked alive". The name should be taken literally, since the dish is something like slicing of absolutely live fish. The restaurants that usually serve Ikizukuri have large aquariums with many marine species. And as soon as the visitor decides on the choice, the chef immediately gets down to business.
Let's say right away that this dish is not for the faint of heart. It is a filleted frog with a still beating heart. But that's not all, the skin is removed from the animal right in front of the visitor. This eerie "delicacy" is very popular in the eastern countries: Japan, China and Vietnam. There, for these purposes, a special variety of ox frogs is specially grown.
Noma is the signature dish of the Copenhagen restaurant of the same name. What makes the salad unique is its dressing - live ants, which are used as a gluten-free ingredient. Before serving, the insects are slightly frozen so that they move more slowly and the process of eating becomes more convenient. You will be surprised, but there are “gourmets” who lay out $ 300 for the dish.
The original dish "Drunken shrimp"
Probably, the Japanese decided to ease the plight of the shrimp and give them water. To do this, marine life is soaked either in sake or in the Chinese alcoholic drink Baijiu. They say live shrimp jump right on the table. An eerie sight!
If you think that only Asians are sophisticated, then you will be very surprised to learn about the favorite entertainment of Italians. It is customary for them to collect sea urchins during walks along the sea coast and immediately eat them alive. The fact is that within these thorny sea creatures are fleshy gonads, which are said to taste very good.
And now let's talk about delicious octopuses, but not in the form of a frozen sea cocktail, as is customary in our country, but about the favorite dish of the Koreans, sannakchi. This is a live octopus, served either sliced or whole. Imagine, the tentacles of the animal still wriggle when the plate is placed on the table. They say that in this dish, not the taste itself is important, but the sensations that people experience when chewing a tormented animal. However, not many daredevils agree to this, since the dish is very dangerous. There are special suction cups on the tentacles that can stick to a person's throat and strangle him.
