17 year cicadas
a large brood of cicadas is scheduled to emerge this spring. i usually use this recipe on our 13 year cicadas but those 17 year bugs are reputed to be bigger and just as tasty. remove the wings and legs (unless you are lucky enough to catch them before they harden.)
Marinate cicadas in Worcestershire sauce at least 1 hours.
Dip into flour, egg then into breadcrumbs.
Deep fry and serve with cocktail sauce
also good broiled or bar b q
my favorite cicada pizza :
cicada jumbalaya :
chocolate covered they are delicious (a valentine treat) and they make a great gumbo
thanks to buzzfeed for the photos
That all looks like something I'd throw out because of all the bugs in it.
I hope I never see a day when I have to eat them to survive.
