LAS VEGAS (TheStreet) -- The holiday of hearts is just around the corner, and with it comes thoughts of champagne, oysters, chocolate and other foods of love!One you might not think of though is blowfish. Long believed by the Japanese to be an aphrodisiac, blowfish is the most dangerous of the aphrodisiac foods. It is actually that danger, more than nutritional content, that is believed to be the reason behind this ugly little fish's ardor-inducing properties. Although licensed chefs take great pains to remove the mortally toxic parts of the fish, they are only human, and even the tiniest slip-up during preparation can have deadly results. It is the adrenaline released during this culinary dance with death that is the true aphrodisiac.
