I know that it's dead but...I'm still too scared to try to eat it. Thankfully, the staff at Rocket News 24 found someone with the courage necessary to try this Japanese dish:
The piranha was fried with sauce but still clearly resembled a whole piranha, ravenous jagged mouth agape. Usagi squeezed a twist of lemon over it with a shaky hand. The fish looked as if it could suddenly reanimate and take its revenge.
Realizing that was silly, Usagi took a breath and got ready to eat. By this time she thought the whole scene was a little too chic to being eating such a vicious predator.
Laughing to herself, she cut into the body. Her knife and fork clattered onto the plate as she suddenly let them slip out of her hands. From within the fish came a foul odor which stopped her in her tracks. Composing herself, our reporter tried to push through and, spearing a morsel of fish with her fork, she tossed it into her mouth… Try to enjoy it as she might, the smell completely overpowered the fish’s taste.
