WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Maryland crab is delicious. Did you know crab and other shellfish are related to insects?  They belong in the same phylum -- they are Arthropods.

So if you are willing to eat insects of the sea, then how about the real ones that will soon be crawling around everywhere?

In 2004, a student at the University of Maryland came up with a section of recipes for preparing Cicadas. The volume is called CICADA-LICIOUS. Recipes include Cicada Dumplings and Banana Cicada Bread.

You can find all of the recipes here:
