Insect food can help us in keeping the food system within environmental limits. To get a kilogram of beef one needs 12 times more feed, 15 times more room and 22 000 times more water than growing a kilogram of insects. The insects offer a new lasting, ethical and delicious way to produce the proteins which are necessary to all of us.
Roasted crickets absorb the tastes deliciously especially when fried in oil with spices.
You can rehydrate roasted crickets in hot water for five minutes and use them like fresh crickets. As Andrew Zimmern in the video below uses living crickets, you can as well create the same dish by using roasted crickets.
We are collecting and developing a list of links to insect food recipes on Bug Bazaar's webpages.
The roasted house cricket is an extremely lasting raw material in the cooking. As one kilo of roasted crickets is actually made from four kilograms of fresh crickets, you will probably not need more than a half a kilo of roasted crickets to prepare for ten-liter cricket pasta sauce. Therefore, one kilo of roasted house cricket is probably more than enough for a big party meal.

Insects may cause an allergic reaction to those who are allergic to, for example, dust mites or shrimp. Food allergens are proteins. Sensitization to insect proteins is possible, just like to any other food proteins. The proteins that insects contain are similar to the proteins of e.g. crustaceans and mollusks. Thus persons who are allergic to prawns, for example, may have an allergic reaction from insect food. Insects may contain traces of gluten.

Man kan vara allergisk mot insektmat. Matallergenerna är proteiner. Man kan bli allergisk mot insektproteiner på samma sätt som mot andra proteiner i maten. Proteinerna i insekter är jämförbara med proteinerna i t.ex. skaldjur och blötdjur. Därför kan en person som är allergisk mot t.ex. räkor få en allergisk reaktion av insektmat.
