Olden, what is a click beetle?
I have eaten termites (taste similar to how they smell), black ants (tasted spicy), witchetty grubs (cooked, taste like fat), and when I was in Thailand, I ate (fried) cricket, grasshopper, meal worms etc, but they all tasted like the oil they were cooked in...yuk. I think they would have been nice cooked fresh in a stirfry. I know you can eat grasshoppers, but you need to pull off the legs.
Also, crustaceans are very closely related, so it may help to think of grasshoppers like prawns, and in teppanyaki they cook the prawn heads for you..crunchy (like grasshopper) & yum.
Does anyone know what insects are actually poisonous?
