Skip to comments.Cockroaches: the new miracle cure for China's ailments
Posted on 10/24/2013 11:58:50 PM PDT by BenLurkin
The correct way to eat a cockroach, at least in this corner of northern China, is to fry it not once but twice in a wok of smoking hot oil.
"The second time makes the shell crispy and the inside succulent," said 43-year-old Wang Fuming, as he tipped a bowl of freshly harvested bugs, one or two of their legs still twitching, into the sizzling pan.
Mr Wang is the leading cockroach farmer in Shandong province, with more than 22 million of the insects living in a series of nondescript, concrete bunkers in the suburbs of Jinan.
After cooking, Mr Wang gently ladled them onto a plate, their bodies plumped with the oil and their wings slightly spread, before sprinkling a packet of instant noodle powder pickled cabbage flavour over the dish.

Those clever Chinese...
a Wang from ShanDong breeding cockroaches..
Which is what the elite want us to eat while they’re scarfing down Wagyu beef, lobster in drawn butter and grilled eco-friendly pork chops.

Yes they are. They figured out how to put Melamine into the cockroaches before sending them overseas.
Not to mention — the Lear Jet Leftists will receive the best healthcare the world has to offer.
While the proles wait six months for a hip replacement — or are simply told that they are too old to get one at all.
Eating insects is nothing new - chocolate covered ants in Japan, fried water beetles in Thailand, tarantula in the Amazon, etc. But cockroaches? Those things carry lots of nasty diseases - hepatitis, salmonella, e. coli, even cholera.
I’d see a doctor about that.
Finally! Something to export to China besides jobs!
We’ll never get rid of those damn things. Now they are breeding them like cows. Wait until they genetically engineer them and make them the size of lobsters.
What new diseases will come of this disgusting “cuisine”?
Ooooooo...bad choice in comparing crittershere, we call Florida-lobsters "bugs"!
Yes, but cockroaches can run. They can run very fast!
Zombie Cockroaches that go after your brains from the inside.
I’ve eaten chocolate covered grasshoppers..
Lobster is AKA the cockroach of the sea.
Wonder if MR. Wang has a recipe for liberals?
Considering that cockroaches are readily available in government housing in the US, and that they are a great source of protein, I suggest that the government add cockroaches to the SNAP program.
My local 7-11 in Hawaii used to sell packaged maggot larvae.
