Deep fried Tarantulas

Exactly what it says.Ingredients:

2 cups vegetable oil

2 frozen tarantulas (adult, Taxas brown, Chilean rose or similar)

1 cup tempura batter

1 tsp smoked paprika

Tempura batter ingredients:

1 medium egg

½ cup cold water

½ cup plain flour

½ tsp baking soda

To make the batter beat the egg until smooth. Slowly add the cold water whilst beating. Add flour and baking soda and allow the mixture to sit (don’t’ worry if it is a bit lumpy). Using a saucepan or deep-fat fryer heat the oil to 190C. Use a sharp knife to cut out the abdomens of the tarantulas and singe off it’s body hairs with a lighter. Thoroughly coat the spider in batter and ensure the legs are not clumped together before frying. Deep fry for about a minute or until the batter is browned. Allow the spiders to drain on a paper towel. Cut the spiders in two lengthways and sprinkle with paprika to serve. Eat the legs first and then nibble at the more meaty bits (avoiding the fangs…)

I think the ideas of eating bugs is cool and gross but I think that we would be able to in the future
