Dead squid 'dances' in creepy Japanese delicacy

If you don’t like your food to ‘fight back’, you'd best avoid the Japanese dish Odori Don.

This popular dish is supposed to be a dead squid soup.  Odori literally means ‘to dance’ – and that’s what happens when you pour soy sauce on the squid.

Apart from coping with waving tentacles you have to be prepared to have the suckers on the tentacles stick to the inside of your mouth.

It may not look that way but the squid really is dead -- it’s the sodium in the soy sauce that activates the squid’s muscles. As wakavision.com puts it: “When you introduce sodium to a relaxed muscle it tenses.”
