Grasshoppers are a distinctive ingredient in pre-hispanic Mexican cuisine. One of the regions of Mexico where sal de chapulin verde is widely used is Oaxaca. Besides Oaxaca, sal de chapulin verde is most popular in areas surrounding Mexico City, such as Tepoztlán, Cuernavaca and Puebla.
Foodies from North America are beginning to laud the salty-sour taste of grasshopper salt. It’s a nice way to ease into entomophagy, or the practice of eating insects. Lobster was once considered too disgusting for the higher classes. After all, it’s a sea bug! Sushi had lots of North Americans saying “ick.” Edible insects are growing in popularity in areas that traditionally did not include them in their diet.
