Three edible insects…cooked


Ready to eat

Well, it didn’t take long to prepare those. Throw them into the wok with a bit of soy sauce and there you go. So now I have this stir-fried assortment of bugs sitting in front of me. I won’t be digging in too much, though. I just had a sample of each and that is enough for me. They all taste pretty much the same and not bad at all, but I’ve blogged and tasted many bugs in the past. Although maybe the perfect analogy just came to mind: soggy potato chips. That is exactly what the texture and taste is like so if you can handle that, you can definitely handle a serving of grasshoppers, water beetles, and crickets. Just close your eyes first…




Another angle!
