Locust meal is YUMMMY.

First, boil a batch until their eyes pop-out. Drain, but keeping the eyes.

Now, cook some veggies and throw the eyes in there. Mix until the eyes are staring straight-up to you.

Place the boiled locusts on a plate, put the veggie/eye mixture on-top. Make certain the eyes are still staring at you.

Season as desired.

Optional>>>> have a puke bag ready.
Will have to skip the Sunday lunch invite, somethings just come up, something about my great great grans goldfish not feeling too well.

I find it funny how in the west we have such a weird thing with insects, especially for consumption. This is actually the most natural way of controlling their numbers, so good on them. :tu: (Better than pesticides etc)

Yeah but will you eat them?  Not me brother!  I'd have to be pretty darned hungry.

NO WAY!!! Hahaha, I was part of my point. lol

We have a shop int he UK called Selfridges and they do chocolate ants, grasshopper and other things like that. I used to always want to try them just to see what it's like, but I never could.

I tried chocolate covered ants before.  It was a waste of good chocolate.  The ants had no flavor but they sure were crunchy.

Watch the master at work.



I remember him eating undigested berries from bear poo - why didn't he just get them from the same tree the bear did?

Well, we eat other two and four legged grain fed critters. So, why not eat six legged grain fed critters also ... But, I am hard pressed to imagine what they will name fried locust wings.

Well I for one definitely prefer the decapods (shrimp, crabs and lobster) to the hexapods, but in some cultures insects are a staple. Crustaceans are little more than sea-going insects. Tasty, tasty insects! Hand me the Old Bay!

I thought locusts generated poisons so that they cannot be eaten?

Apparently this is incorrect since they've been eating locusts in Israel for awhile and this is not a new concept, people of many cultures eat locusts, grass hoppers, ants, meal worms, & all kinds of different bugs since the beginning of time.  I've seen people eat scorpions and centipedes on that show Bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmern.  Great show, really helps to open the mind.

Overcoming revulsions to assorted foodstuffs is a good way to get practice controlling the emotions.  I don't particularly care for locusts, but they don't bother me.  The way they are served in Thailand is just too loaded with the grease they fry them in.
