Edible Insects—Cambodian-Style

Edible Insects-Cambodian-Style

In a country where ants, crickets, beetles, grasshoppers, bee larvae, scorpions, tarantulas, frogs, dogs, cats, bats, and rats are consumed, the question to ask is: “What don’t Cambodians eat?”

Below are some 'snack food' samples from Siem Reap… abundant particularly during the rainy season, when grasshoppers, crickets, beetles, and bugs are collected at light traps, then taken by bag, basket, or bucket to local markets, and sold raw or deep-fried-and-ready-to-eat, garnished with spring onions, garlic, chillies, and seasoning salt.
Bee brood is included in the mix here, and is often consumed raw or grilled.
