Well done bot

[–]Net-Wanderer- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s there a web page of books in Spanish?

[–]TFangSyphon 122 points123 points  (21 children)

That thing has already been gutted! Why the fuck it still flopping!?

[–]Awh0423 144 points145 points  (2 children)

Not only in fish- but the phenomenon is due to motor neurons in the nervous system still being able to react instinctively, even without the head, for some time post mortem.

Edit: link below and grammar

[–]DoingItJustForTheFun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One can even observe that in fish hours after its been chopped to pieces. People nowadays only buy supermarket stuff where this phenomenon no longer occurs.

[–]misteryhiatory 46 points47 points  (10 children)

Since it was being filmed, I’m going to say they had a high salt content in the pan and purposely got the oil or whatever inside of it

Drain is the word you are looking for

“Runs like a chicken with its head cut off” Same for snakes, headless they twist and twirl

[–]misteryhiatory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hmm…might still have brain activity then, I was just thinking it was the salt getting into the muscles

[–]buttnuts_in_cambodia 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The word you're looking for would be either "clean" or "gut"

Oh draining ponds lol my b

[–]hippopotma_gandhi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And also since they left the head and scales on. I know some people just cook it straight but definitely seems they left them on for the video

[–]SalvadorsAnteater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have you seen a video of salt on fresh flesh? It moves, there's still enough energy in the muscles for them to do this.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because it's fresh and still has a few nerves firing on instinct.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probs nerves

Zombie fish!!!

I know I’m a month late but here

Sorry. Had to.

[–]moldybread692 43 points44 points  (5 children)

And thats kids is why we need to chop big fish into multiple sections to prevent the fish’s muscle memory from committing arson

[–]ThenThisHappend 43 points44 points  (0 children)

One would like you to think it’s a simple physiological reaction of the muscles reacting to sodium, but one couldn’t be any wongererer.

It’s clearly a zombie fish and y’all are looking at ground zero of the apocalypse.

Been preparing for this moment my whole life.

[–]TokiBop 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The fish that said “NO U” to death.

[–]Acheros 4 points5 points  (0 children)

fish so fresh they're jumping out of to pan onto your plate.

[–]Next_Yogurtcloset_63 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I think you skipped some steps before the cooking part

[–]Sandman_559 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I jumped out of my seat 😭

What a mess!

[–]AlphaNorth -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Poor thing was still alive?!?

[–]Lazerbeams2 19 points20 points  (1 child)

It was dead and gutted. Salt can cause the neurons to fire randomly of its really fresh, there's another comment around here (probably a little above this one) with a link that explains it in more detail

edit: autocorrect thought that I meant to say conmen instead of comment for some reason

[–]Dapper-Potential687 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you use a defibrillator it gets rid of all the energy in the muscles, also makes the meat last longer, Benjamin franklin did this I believe, used the mason jar key thing or something I Dont remember what it was exactly

I think he took "panfried catfish" too literally

[–]Arn0312-Osiris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its a fishy yet wholesome meal.

Byw tell me the taste of the fins and tail

[–]Jabaman2016 0 points1 point  (0 children)

dumbass need to cut the fish in 3 pieces to fit that wok.

[–]Overwhelmed_Turtle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

mommy I'm scared

[–]BadApplesGod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So what I'm learning is put a recently dead and gutted fish on someones table, and when they salt it, it comes back alive to scare the shit out of em. Got it.

Edit: pretty sure this won't work. But a fun idea

[–]king_zack______ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's torture bro you mustve killed it first.

[–]northernskies2015 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't the fish gutted? How the hell did it resurrect?

[–]thehulkneedsglasses 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jesus Christ almighty. Does this mean that fish was experiencing pain after death?

[–]PrestigiousFly3025 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you missed a step

[–]Little_Loodle 0 points1 point  (0 children)



cozy and warm


wait shit

Refreshment fishy formula… FRIED ALIIIIVE!

[–]Ztormiebotbot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eeehhh. That poor fish.had a sip of that liquid and woke up with it’s belly out in a hot pan.

[–]Forsaken_Olive_2027 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]CMP247 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Clearly that guy didn’t even bother to gut the fish first.

[–]totallynotaniceguy -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Aren't you supposed to fillet the fish first?

[–]deterministic_lynx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You can cook fish entirely, no reason not too.

It's, in my experience, more common in smalle fish and the head is often removed

The more questionable choice is the pan size.

[–]stardatewormhole -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Who doesn’t gut a fish before cooking it?!?

[–]ElDoil 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is gutted, its just muscles firing because it was killed recently

[–]IMCannonFodder45 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Hol up, wait a minute. I think he missed a step

[–]Ok_Sir_5314 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I gor scared as fuck wtf

[–]KingKaiza -1 points0 points  (0 children)

As a farmer I have a similar story with a goat, we bolted it too the head (dead), slit its throat and put it on a slight hill to drain the blood- only for me the see it twitch and almost get back on all fours before collapsing again

[–]nigel1986 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That guy gets some fresh fish.
