Grasshopper Taco

I had a grasshopper taco at Oyamel in D.C.

What's the verdict? Tasty?

My parents ate grasshopper growing up. They told me that the scent of cooked grasshopper is similar to that of shrimp shells.

The grasshoppers were pretty heavily seasoned with lime, so I can't say that I got a clear sense of what the taste of grasshopper was.

I liked eating the grasshoppers individually. They were crunchy. But a big sloppy bite of the whole thing was hard to take--bugs went everywhere.
