Insects as food

Insect sushi

Yes, I know, gross, right? I’m actually willing to give crickets a try if it’s deep fried in a batter similar to those used with alligator meat on the bayou of Louisiana. Remember that fantastic little film from last year, Beasts of the Southern Wild? That’s where the batter-fried idea comes from. Fried and roasted insects are sold routinely by street vendors in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, South America and Japan. Millions of entomophagists can’t be wrong, right? I’d probably pass on the worms, though. I couldn’t imagine squishing those between my teeth.
