The internet really is a strange place where people try anything!
Last week, a man posted photos and a video of him preparing and frying a fish. Sounds normal, right? Well, what’s different about this fish is that it’s normally kept as a pet and reportedly costs RM2,845!
The fish is known as a luohan or a flowerhorn fish and is commonly bought to be kept in aquariums. Known for its signature forehead bump and vividly beautiful colours, flowerhorns fetch a hefty price on the market, which was why people thought it was ridiculous when this man decided to deep fry it!
The video the man uploaded showed him chopping the hump off of the flowerhorn and showing what it looked like from the inside.
An excerpt from his post wrote,
“Yes it’s tasty, sweet and juicy served hot right away from the pan, super delicious fried fish. What do you mean it cannot be eaten? Fish is food, its beautiful appearance doesn’t mean you can’t touch it. Yes, it’s expensive.”
“That hump on its head is nothing but fat and a little bit of meat. We (should) remove them. It’s soft like jelly but chewy.
“Why eat this fish? Why not…lol.”
He even posted photos of the fish frying in wok and then served on a plate. Wah, RM2,800 fried and eaten just like that!
This post was met with a comments from Malaysians who criticised the netizen for cooking such an expensive fish.
What do you think of buying such an expensive fish just to eat it? Let us know!
