Joseph Yoon’s Edible Insect Chef’s Sampler

This is a wonderful starter package that presents you with not only what is playfully referred to as the “gateway bug,” the cricket (and powder), but also gives you the opportunity to experiment with some of my other favorite edible insects. There are a lot of recipe and menu ideas that I regularly share on my social media if you’d like to get ideas of how I’ve prepared all of these in the past. With the growing interest in edible insects around the world, now is the perfect time to start learning how to successfully integrate them into your lifestyles with this sampler.

All insects come shelf stable,and ready to eat, but we encourage you to explore how you can gastronomically enhance them into all of your favorite dishes.

Please note, that people with shellfish allergies may also be allergic to the chitin also found in insects.

Culinary Quality Black Ants

Black Ants have formic acid as a defense mechanism, and it gives them an incredible burst of an acidic or tangy citrus flavor. The crunch makes them similar to pop-rocks when eaten alone, and they can be used as a protein-rich substitute any time you are in need of acid like vinegar, lemon, or lime in your food.

WHOLE ROASTED CRICKETS

Crickets are commonly referred to as the “gateway bug,” and are a favorite among entomophagists because of their incredible versatility. The flavor can vary drastically from farm to farm, and by how they are processed, and these have an earthy and nutty flavor from the roasting process. Crickets are a wonderful addition or substitute for any of your favorite dishes—from spaghetti sauce, to tacos, to fried rice, to sweet desserts—crickets are a fun and easy starter to add to your culinary repertoire.

SAL Y LIMON CHAPULINES

Sal y Limon Chapulines – While we usually prefer getting edible insects in as natural of their state as possible, these salt and lemon grasshoppers are so good and ready-to-eat as a snack, we thought we’d offer them already flavored for your convenience. You can also add them to any number of your culinary creations, and there really are no limitations except for your imagination.

WHOLE ROASTED MEALWORMS

Mealworms have an earthy and nutty flavor that you can highlight in your desserts, or if you cook them with aromatics, can lend a depth of flavor to your savory dishes as well. The crunch adds a good texture when you want that little something extra for your dish.

CULINARY QUALITY SCORPIONS

These small and dramatic scorpions definitely have the “WOW” factor, and we truly love integrating them into our savory dishes. They are brined in salt and sun dried, and have a briny baby shrimp quality to them. We love to marinate or ferment them in spices and add them as the special showstopper for our dinners or events. Because of their flavor profile, we personally prefer to use them only in savory applications.

SAL DE GUSANO

Sal de Gusano can add a unique flavor that will spice up any of your dishes from vegetables, to popcorn, to seafood, but the most popular way may be to add it as a salt rim to your margarita. There are peppers added to this mix which give it a beautiful spicy note as well.

CRICKET POWDER

Cricket Powder is finely ground from roasted whole crickets and are an excellent addition to countless numbers of savory or sweet dishes. Depending on how you utilize it, the mild taste can easily be hidden in your food, or you may choose to make it the highlight of your dish. You can add it to everything from smoothies to soups, to tempura batters and pancakes, to all your favorite baking sweets. Extremely versatile, and an easy way to incorporate more protein into an otherwise vegetarian meal.
