1.Ying Yang fish

It is called "ying-yang fish" and also known as "dead and alive" fish. It is illegal in Taiwan but recently became famous in china as some chef found new way to make fish alive as it is deep fried. I can't understand why some people eat such weird dishes in which they want their food alive or in movement.
