Yes, you read correctly. Crickets. Why not? They add texture and protein and this recipe doesn't taste buggy at all.
A good introduction to insects. I even had a vegan try it because, well, she decided she had to.

Step 1: Ingredients

Ginger-Orange Cricket Glaze

50 Crickets ( read my "Insects for Food-prep. 101" Instructables to see how to prep the crickets)
1/2 cup fresh squeezed Orange juice
1 teaspoon micro-planed fresh Ginger
3/4 teaspoon Orange zest
1/4 cup brown Sugar
1/2 Tablespoon Cornstarch

Berry Sauce

2 cups fresh berries, I used strawberries and raspberries, roughly chopped
1/4 cup filtered water
1/8 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon fresh Orange zest
1 teaspoon fresh Lemon juice

Berry Ganache

12 ounces of semi-sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 - 3/4 cup heavy cream (depending how thick you want your Ganache)
1/2 cup Berry sauce, reserve remaining sauce for garnish

<p>Only problem I have with crickets and grasshoppers is the wings and legs.</p>
I agree... I prefer cricket breasts much more than legs or wings!
