    Can I ask how it tasted?

    • Isaac,
      Honesty, I have not attempted this one just yet. I’m currently farming the isopods. They are similar in taste to shellfish/other crustaceans. I hope to try this recipe in the next few months, once I have more (and fatter) isopods. When I do, I’ll post pictures and will explain if it’s actually tasty or not!
