Cicada Recipes: Feast on the Killer Invasion
I can see it now: villainousness droves of hungry, love-starved, red-eyed cicadas; so furiously flooding the sky they turn day into night, coming to pillage and plunder any unsuspecting person that gets in their way.
Having tried everything to combat the evil cicada forces, our hero decides the only way to stop the devastation and imminent destruction caused by this planetary menace is to take up his trusty frying pan, some spices, his favorite recipe pasted down for generations, and go “Julia Child” on the invading aliens.
So that might be more a plot to a ’70s B movie, but believe it or not, some people have decided to try just that. Whether it is a nice addition to their favorite ice cream, a tasty pizza topping, or delicately mixed into their pasta salad, people have been coming up with all kinds of ways to ingest these crunchy creatures.
Grab your favorite cooking utensils, and let’s show these cicadas who’s on top of the food chain. To help, here are some links to recipes that are sure to help please your palate.
