Is there anyone here on the boards who has actually tasted tarantula?
I'm packing up for a move and I just came across some old molts, plus I'm getting hungry for dinner, lol.
I know some people store their dead Ts in the freezer. Ever thought about scraping the bristles off of one with a paring knife and throwing it into a frying pan with a bit of oil and some herbs?
i want to know too. ive looked for ways to perpare a T in like a thai dish but no results yet. also im not sure which Ts are edible.
I haven't actually had it but I understand tarantulas, like other invertibrates, taste like crab or lobster, but without the fishiness. Basically nondescript but definitely mild and soft (once you get through the exoskeleton).
In other words they basically taste like the spices they are cooked/dipped in.
None of my big Ts have died since I started in the hobby.
But when one does, I don't imagine I'll want to flush it. Or bury it in someone else's yard.
Preparing a pet for cooking would be sad and gruesome, but in the end we would be together forever

17 T's and counting..........
they taste like chicken DUH...
I hear they taste like prawns, from an expert who has had them.
I hear they taste like a mix between lobsters and shrimp from a Nat Geo program I saw. The natives would sear the tarantula over a roast pit so the hairs would singe off. After it is roasted, the flesh is creamy white with some orange and steam coming out. The texture looks like shrimp...
Never ate a tarantula, but if you go to the Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans they sure know how to cook insects!
With karate I'll kick your ass, from here to right over there.
