To diners, it must have seemed like mealtime magic: Squeeze a little lemon on a prawn and watch as it hops up, jumps around and "dances" on the dinner plate.

Poor little guys! How would they like thier skin stripped off and lemon juice poured on them? i think I'll take a trip to Nishiki Sushi in Sacramento, just to make sure they're not making those poor shrimp dance. TY Simone

Noted, thanks Simone. Never heard of this, but glad PETA stepped in to stop it.

This is so sick!!! Was watching a cooking show last evening----and they were doing a cajun boil---(you can do a veggie boil also) however, this was just the normal cajun boil-----and they put the shrimp and crabs in alive--bad enough to put them in dead, but alive in boiling water (says makes them taste better-fresher). I flipped off the TV--couldn't take that---what is wrong with people---????
