Here's the first: A recipe for the emerging larvae. I found it at cicadayear.com.
- 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 30 freshly emerged 17-year cicadas
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- Salt and pepper to season the flour
- 1/2 cup corn oil or slightly salted butter
Marinate cicadas in Worcestershire sauce for several hours.
Dip them in the beaten egg, roll them in the seasoned flour and then gently saute until they are golden brown.
Anyone else ready?
I'll post another recipe for the cicada's "out of the shell" soon.
Random thought. Cicada lovers like cheesy stuff, right? How about "The Cheese Song"?
