Know your food: Fried grasshoppers
A portion of fried grasshoppers, served at a restaurant in Chiayi County. Without seasoning or sauce, the insects weren't that tasty - although they were pleasantly crunchy. I don't know if the grasshoppers were farmed for human consumption or caught in the countryside; certain species, you'll find if you spend time in rural areas, are quite common.
