mmm, giant water beetle. [Nov. 15th, 2004|05:40 pm]

the taste is like a stale cracker and the texture is like twigs.  hmm.  it's kinda gross, but in reality just as gross as eating the flesh of a pig that roots around in dirty places, but bacon tastes good.  pork chops taste gooood.

Wait, do you mean Giant Water BUG, like they eat in Thailand? I know you can buy them in the right markets around here, but I didn't know anyone who'd tried one. I would have thought that it would taste kind of fishy.

How did you cook it?

Why are people grossed out?
Do they eat shrimp or crayfish?

Lobsters root around in much nastier places than pigs.
Giant Water Bugs (or beetles, if that's what you ate) are predaceous. (they eat fish and frogs and stuff)

oh ya, it's a "Giant Water BUG". but i don't really know the difference. it was precooked in a can. not so fishy, but i'd like to know more about how they live(d). ; ) i had no idea they were predaceous. you and my gf would get along well; lots of discovery channel knowledge.
