How to Eat A Cricket (Cambodia)

Here I am at the West Baray near Siem Reap in Cambodia about to eat a water beetle. Euww! - right?
What people never tell you is that there is a WAY to eat large fried insects. It's not complicated.
Our guide, Chen, told me that you do NOT pop one of these in your mouth and chomp away on the crunchy bits - you peel away the legs and a lot of the exoskeleton.

So when you are abroad and you see piles of crickets or other bugs offered for sale in the park...try a few! It's like eating shrimp.
