Porcellio laevis are a soft-bodied aggressive and protein loving species endemic to europe but which have taken root in almost North American ecosystem. As opposed to the other common European species, Armadillidum vulgare, Porcellio species are said to have a mild taste when compared to the strong notes of celery present in harder-bodied isopods.

Step 1) Gut loading - feed them whatever you want them to taste like a week prior to euthanizing. In this case I picked apples.

Step 2) Bring the isopods into dormancy by placing them in a refrigerator for 30 minutes then euthanize by transferring to freezer.

Step 3) Rinse these bad boys.
Image

Step 4): Fan fry with some sesame oil, brown sugar, and soy sauce.
Image

Step 5) Consume
Image

They were crunchy with a nice shrimp-like aftertaste. The soy sauce and sugar helped to subdue some of the bugginess, but overall I would eat these again. 8/10

Only ok with this if it isn't cause of one of those articles being like "eating bugs is the new hip thing, and our alternative food source when global warming happens and it's the new way to save money and it's racist if you don't eat bugs" written by some rich capitalist that want's us to sleep in the dirt and eat bugs cause they hate us.

nah, i just like eating bugs

BUT

consider this:
  • three times the protein than chicken
  • can be fed table scraps as a means of producing fertilizer for compost and doubles as a food source
  • carbon negative impact on the environment and if released into the wild, isopods have the capability to reduce levels of heavy metal in soil
  • crumnchy
  • once genetically modified, i can eat bug steaks on my priceless space yacht after the nuclear holocaust

the gut contents were unfortunately a little mealy. i would probably let them pass all of their stomach contents next time

one fun thing is that females brood their offspring (mancae) in between their legs, so when you bite down on a pregnant (gravid) female it's like getting a few dozen extra pop rocks in your mouth

Why are you, a bug, posting a thread about how delicious bugs are. Seems counterintuitive to your survival.

addendum:

What you’re saying is he’s departed to a lateral, more exclusive, perhaps hostile or competitive level of Frog And Bug Maintenance ? :cursed:
