Crispy fried black soldier fly larvae!

After rearing about 10.000 larvae on food-graded feed (toast bread) it was time for the big harvest at our greenhouse! After purging and freezing the larvae, we seasoned portions of them with either garlic, lime juice, onions, mint, vinegar, chilli, salt or olive oil and let them soak over night. The result was absolutely amazing – fried for about 5 mins at medium heat, the larvae turned very crispy and added a perfect note to the rest of the meal. They were also enjoyed as snack, just like a bag of chips. Coming in different flavors, you could almost not stop munching on them!
