Fish is great and good for you. Fanny helps a reader with Puffer Fish…….
I bought a couple of Puffer fish from a man in my local pub today and I’m not sure how to extract the poison from them.
I did ask the man who sold them to me but he ran away. He seemed a nice man. He had a hi-vis jacket on that said Health and Safety.
Maybe he didn’t like fish.
Can I have a signed photo please?

If you’re fortunate enough to find an expert to do this for you you’re a very lucky lady indeed!
I was fortunate to spend a night in a Puffer den in Northern Japan during my best-selling Asian book tour of Asia.
The book of the tour “Pol’s Pots - Quick Snacks For The Workers” can still be found on Amazon.
If my memory serves me well he (the expert, not Pol Pot) boiled the sack of poison in a herb reduction and BOOM! Apart from the nightmarish flashbacks I get even now some 30 years later it was a rather pleasant experience.
Poach the remaining fish in white wine and serve with broccoli. Drink red wine with it.
