What are some recipes for cooking cockroaches?

In Singapore they sell those and I'm wondering how do I cook them? I bought some and I'm gazing in confusion. Are they more of a sweetened things (like with chocolate and vanilla), peppery (with sausages and chilli) or sour (with jello)? What should I mix in?

No, it's SAFE to eat them. They are approved by the Singaporean Food & Drug Administration.

    1 onion

    1. Remove and discard the solid wing covering flaps and all legs of the cockroach.

    2. Put the whole cockroaches into a pot of boiling oil and quickly fry for 15 seconds.

    3. Heat a wok until hot. Add four spoons of oil and put all vegetables into it to stir fry for three minutes.

    4. Put the half cooked cockroaches in to the wok and add salt and corn starch.

    Note: Yes, you can eat cockroaches! Just not the ones you find around your house. Contrary to popular belief, cockroaches can actually be very clean and tasty insects, especially if they are fed on fresh fruits and vegetables. They can be eaten toasted, fried, sauteed, or boiled. Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches have a taste and texture like greasy chicken

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://biturl.im/aU44j

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    Cockroaches aren't bad to eat at all. they are completely edible...it's just the thought of eating a bug that is making you sick. A LOT of cultures eat bugs and, scientifically, it's not bad for your body whatsoever. Bugs have various proteins and nutrients in 'em that help your body grow and heal. In Korea, they have a sandwich with "frog juice" in it, ham, and some live eels. In Nigeria, they cook and eat locusts...they call it "Desert shrimp" lol. It'll be fine, and now you can say that you've eaten a cockroach!

    I like to eat my cockroaches straight up. I just reach under the refrigerator and grab a handful. I found a big fat juicy one this morning.
