Photographer's Note

The fried spider is a Cambodian dish from the village of Skun, Cambodia.

This dish is prepared with tarantulas (especially the species Haplopelma albostriatum1) in the form of donuts. Tarantulas are raised in holes north of the village, then fried in garlic after being coated with sugar and glutamate1. They can be eaten with beer or a handful of Kampot black pepper.
