Default Fried Tarantulas

Animal Planet aired an hour long "Spider Files: Australia's
Tarantulas" last night (Tues. 10th.) and they showed people in Cambodia
eating fried tarantulas.

Anyone have a recipe? Kev

Oooooooooooh, I've seen this on either the Discovery or the National
Geographic Channel. Supposedly they taste like lobster or something
like that, I believe I'll have to pass on this dish. For some reason a
tribe either in South America or Africa then uses their fangs to pick
their teeth.

Imagine what it must be like to wake up and find a spider whose fangs
are big enough to pick your teeth with sharing your bed. Kev

I know that in Florida lobster divers call lobsters "bugs". If I had
to guess what a tarantula would taste like, i'd tend to lean more
towards a "crab-like" flavor.... or chicken.

Of course if we ate them in the U.S, we'd drown them in ketchup, so it
wouldn't matter much what they tasted like. Kev

Makes sense, since crab and lobster are just water bugs anyway. A
fact that DH delights in reminding me of, whenever we have crab.

I actually fumbled through the bananas and found one but it was the
wrong brand, didn't have a price sticker and was a hen not a fryer. kev

Well, there's yer problem - check in the meat department. Or
maybe seafood - them live lobsters in the tank look sorta
like bugs, right?
