Don’t knock them until you’ve tried them. Including innovative insect recipes on the menu is a food trend that’s continually growing in popularity with eateries across the country—from ball park stadiums to taquerias.These delightfully crunchy Chili-Lime Grasshoppers are a tasty and protein-packed snack that are shockingly satisfying. You’ll want to start with grasshoppers that have already been dry roasted for these zesty little bites (you can find edible grasshoppers online). Pair with a cold beer and an open mind, and we think you might be surprised by how much you enjoy them. 

How to Make It

Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high. Add grasshoppers, and cook, stirring constantly, until toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add salt, sugar, chili powder, and cayenne pepper; cook, stirring constantly, until well coated. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with lime zest.
