I get asked a lot if i've ever eaten a scorpion, the answer was NO until this morning.They were going to be euthanized today anyways, so don't feel to bad.

The answer is: shrimp/lobster/crawfish. that is what they taste like.

Ha!, I did too. I ordered one small can from Asia out of curiosity. It looked like H. laoticus and tasted kind of a strong lobster taste to it, but too strong ..could've been rotten as far as I know.

Too crunchy for me, dude, but if they really do taste like lobster, I might reconsider! A nice white wine to gobble it down with.....:D

I registered just to stop this lie, Scorpion belongs to Arachnids not crustacean, If you tell me that spiders taste like shrimp or crab then there's something wrong with you.

Scorpions leaves a bitter sweet taste same like spiders.
