A buddy of mine said some told him that deep fried sand fleas were tasty. Sounds like some Anthony Bourdain crap to me, but I've always said don't knock it 'til you try it. So, anybody ever heard of this or had any themselves?

Ive tried them and I didnt think they were that good. They are not awful but I wouldnt eat them again. However, I know some people who enjoy eating them

Be careful, I can see it now 1 inch minimum24 limit per person on Florida Sand fleas closed season April 1st - June 30th. This regulation is being put into place because of over eating.:banghead:banghead:doh

ROFL, I think you might be right. Or worse they could end up on the endangered species list and no one will be able to walk along the water for fear of crushing the rare sand flea.

I don't see myself in the future saying "Man, I'm hungry", driving to the beach and raking up fleas to eat. I have no doubt they are good to some but I'll stick to whatever it is I normally eat.

If it's deep fried, is it going to taste something like soft shell crab? ...because I like soft shelled crab. I like to try food from different cultures, but I'm not sure about this one.

+2....I doubt I could get past the thought of it being a sandflea. Maybe on "Survivor"....ha
