I'm willing to give them another try where they actually know how to cook them.
no sir, what you ate were ditch roaches, as in the nasty little crawdads found in roadside ditches in cities.
or they might have been actual crawdads but raised on a farm. those are usually pretty nasty too, they either taste like mud or dogfood. catfish is another meal that you run into that problem with.
and before anybody asks, no i don't eat the brains.
