Finally, if you’re so inclined, cicadas can make a low-fat, high-protein snack.  Dried cicadas provide a crunch with a nutty, earthy taste, according to those who’ve tried it. In their softer form, before their exoskeletons harden, others say the cicadas are “shrimp-like”. A group at the University of Maryland even published a periodical cicada cookbook titled Cicada-licious, featuring recipes for dishes such as Cicada Dumplings, Emergence Cookies and El Chirper tacos. Here is an example recipe:

Chocolate-Covered Cicadas
