Can you name some things in your food that you're NOT supposed to eat?

But, at one point, the guy is going to add some cardamom.. he pops three or four pods into his mouth, crushes them a bit with his teeth and then.....spits them into the pot.

I thought of doing the same thing, though cooking just for myself. The challenge was to open the leathery pod to let the seeds out but not crush the seeds since they have a nice texture when cooked, thus a mortar and pestle wouldn't work. Maybe I'll try cutting them open with a paring knife.

Smoked Maple Cat Fish

one catfish (3lb or um, [2.2 X 3=....] 6k )
one maple plank - 6"x 12'' or whatever the hell that is in cms.
salt

Use a scissors to cut a line up the bellyskin of the fish from his little asshole up to near the head. Stick your finger in at the top and remove the guts.
(Whoot ~ Don't eat those)
Use a hammer and a stainless steel nail to attach the fish to the plank. *Right through the head.
(Of course, through the head. The head is still on, nobody said anything about removing the head.
If you removed the head you need another catfish. Jeez)

Place the plank onto the grate above your prepared smoker fire.
(Crap, did I forget to tell you about the smoker fire? NO! It's called SMOKED Maple Catfish ! god!! )

Salt the fish and the plank.

Leave in smoker untouched for about three hours making sure that there is plenty of smoke.

Remove from smoker.

Let rest about ten minutes.

Using a knife, carefully cut the fish away from the nail.
Discard.
Eat the plank.

@Joe Nation,
Thank you, Joe. Where do I get a plank?

Your waiter's thumb if he accidentally touched your food while carrying one too many plates to the table to save making an extra trip to the table.

You're not supposed to eat those slips on paper inside a fortune cookie.
That's easy to do, as they taste just like the cookie.

After thinking for a moment about it, there are quite a few foods with paper in them, where you're not supposed to eat the paper.
Chicken: Giblets and neck inside are often wrapped in paper
Hamburger patties: Often separated by paper squares
Candy: Remember that candy... little colored sugar dots stuck to paper?
Roast meat: Paper frills are sometimes used on the ends of chicken drumsticks or rib bones.

@Banana Breath,
Technically the paper wrapping from a Coolhaus ice cream sandwich is edible:

A number of serious Sichuan dishes like Chongqing chicken are served with a large number of dried hot chili peppers. You're not supposed to eat the peppers, though I suppose you could if your intestines are lined with Teflon.

Most people in the West have a phobia with respect to tea leaves, the leaves are filtered and discarded before serving, they don't even want to see a single leaf floating in their tea. In the east, tea is commonly served free floating in the cup, but most people don't consume the tea itself. Interestingly, tea was originally cooked as a vegetable, and the liquid was discarded.

The fear is a real thing! And it's Justified!
