How to eat insects: Here are some dishes that use insects as part of their ingredients.

Actress Salma Hayek said on the David Letterman show a few years ago that she enjoys eating insects. Yes, those creepy crawlies like ants, worms and grasshoppers. It is hard to wrap one's mind around the idea that many cultures around the world eat insects as a delicacy and how in countries such as Mexico, usually the rich can afford these pricey bugs. Last week, a discovery lunch was organised in Brussels, Belgium to highlight the nutrition value of insects. Locusts and worms, which are high in protein, were some of the items on the menu. These were fried with olive oil before serving. You may want to give it a shot if you are adventurous. However, if you spot a bug in your dish that you didn't order, please don't try to eat it.
