As crazy as it may seem I worked with a man by the name of David George Gordon who is known for writing the Eat-A-Bug cookbook (you can see his website at www.davidgeorgegordon.com). From what I remember, a lot of bugs are nutritious for you as the provide a lot of protein. Here is a recipe that uses crickets that I got from him:
Yield: six servings
3 cups vegetable broth
1 cup orzo
1 cup two- or three-week-old cricket nymphs
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup finely diced red pepper
1/4 cup finely diced green pepper
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Bring broth to a boil, then stir in the orzo.
Continue boiling the pasta until it is tender (about 10 minutes); drain any extra liquid, then quickly add carrot and red and green peppers. Mix evenly and set aside.
In a separate skillet, melt the butter, adding the minced garlic, onions and crickets. Sauté briefly, until the onions are clear and the garlic and crickets have browned.
Combine cricket mixture, including any liquid, with the orzo and vegetables, top with parsley and serve.

There is a cricket in my house the size of a Monster. I am scared! He/she was in my bathroom at 2:00 am this morning. I put on my shoes and got the broom and attacked. It has quite high jumping...

How long do crickets generally live for?I have had an adult cricket in an enclosure for several months. He is a very rowdy creature which I love hearing at night.
