In Africa, frying locusts in palm oil is common. What kind of stores might sell them? What's the basic technique for frying them, and how would I add seasoning?

  • I'm sorry but we don't entertain recipe requests here. The internet is a wealth of information, though, even for stuff like this. You should be able to find a recipe.

  • Are you asking about things like how to season them or just about the basic technique for frying them? The former is a recipe request as mentioned, the latter seems good though!

  • Where are you @Geremia? Availability will be very different depending on your location.

Good information at InsectsAreFood. Scroll down for a decent list of places to buy. There is also a site called BizarreFood.com that has a shopping page with all sorts of bagged and canned bugs. It appears that the UK has the best-developed edible insect markets. If you live elsewhere, you might want to research your country's laws, regulations and requirements before you order.
