Insect Sushi

Shoichi Uchiyama hat im Jahr 2008 ein Buch mit Insekten-Rezepten rausgebracht, ich finde das Buch leider nirgends online, beim Telegraph gibts drei kurze Beispiel-Rezepte und die Bilder zum Sushi finde ich (tatsächlich) so appetitlich, dass ich mir jetzt Sushi für meinen Sonntagabend kommen lasse. Normales Sushi, wohlgemerkt.

Yellow Hornet Larvae

Blanch the larvae in boiling water for 30 seconds, cool them off and serve with soy sauce and wasabi (Japanese horseradish). Mr Uchiyama says: "The larvae need to be fresh and the best ones are those that you have just taken from a nest, still moving. Then they are sweet and creamy."

Argentine Cockroach

Cut open shell, scoop out meat and fry with butter. Replace in shell to serve on top of salad. "It has no smell at all, but the texture of tender fish," says Mr Uchiyama.

Hornet or Silkworm Pupae

Fry at a high temperature for a very short time and serve wrapped in slices of "kamaboko" fish paste.
