    Rita~'s Note:

    If you dare! This is being posted because this is the year of the 17 year Cicadas. And because I wanted to post in a topic going on now at zaar (What is your least popular recipe?). I'm sure I'm not going to make it. And I can't imagine how popular it will be. I found this in a news paper and they got it from If you dare, use newly hatched cicadas. Because their shells have not hardened yet. I guess like eating a soft shell crab. OK I'm guessing on amounts. The cooking time I'm thinking they are like large shrimp so I figure 3 minutes for cooking. I'm putting it in the Appetizers course even though I don't find it appetizing! You know we'll see by the end of the summer if I make them. They say it's high protein.

      The cicadas here in Japan are the size of birds -- I'm not brave enough to have one land on me, so it might be a bit hard to ingest them. Thanks for the laugh, though!
