  • BTDT2,

    I use Terminix not only for pest control, but also for the scrumptious recipes........
    Deep-Fried Tarantula






    You'll need:
    • 2 cups canola or vegetable oil
    • 2 frozen adult Texas brown, Chilean rose or similar-sized tarantulas, thawed
    • 1 cup tempura batter (instructions below)
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    Tempura Batter:

    • 1 medium egg
    • 1/2 cup cold water
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    To make the batter, beat the egg in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Slowly add the cold water, continuing to beat until evenly mixed. Add the flour and baking soda and beat gently until combined; the batter should be a bit lumpy. Let the batter sit at room temperature while heating the oil.

    In a deep saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat the oil to 350°F. With a sharp knife, sever and discard the abdomens from the two tarantulas. Singe off any of the spider’s body hairs with a crème brûlée torch or butane cigarette lighter. Dip each spider into the tempura batter to thoroughly coat. Use a slotted spoon or your hands to make sure each spider is spread-eagled (so to speak) and not clumped together before dropping it into the hot oil.

    Deep-fry the spiders, one at a time, until the batter is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Remove each spider from the oil and place it on paper towels to drain. Use a sharp knife to cut each spider in two lengthwise. Sprinkle with the paprika and serve. Encourage your guests to try the legs first and, if still hungry, to nibble on the meat-filled mesothorax, avoiding the spider’s paired fangs, which are tucked away in the head region.

      Sounds a lot like my favorite cave cricket recipe. Unfortunately that supply has dropped significantly.

    When they said “build that wall” I had no idea it was on the east borders to keep Californians out
    of Arizona and Nevada.

      Perhaps you can find someone from one of those states to vouch that you are not a liberal/socialist/communist.

      You see my dear Sani, when two horseshoe crabs love each other, they do whatever the heck those two are doing.

        Yum!!! Absolutely!

    • Ironically, I'm typing this as I'm washing the scrubs I wore today because of a rather messy event................

      NOLA's clever rejection of the grasshopper kabob dish made me laugh. I have to admit that the pic unsettled my stomach. That queasy feeling reminded me of an unpleasant event that happened to me when I was a new grad and like an idiot, I decided to tell a co-worker who was also a new grad. Our boss walked in just in time to see us both dry heaving.

        Insect protein is known to cure dry heaves.
