Awesome Stuff, All the Time
The Lightning Beetle is a small, luminescent beetle found in areas with high amounts of electricity. It has a bright blue body with black stripes and two long antennae that glow a bright blue.
When consumed, the beetle's essence infuses the dish with a mild electrical charge that gives it a unique, tingling sensation on the tongue. Its subtle flavor profile is slightly sweet, with hints of citrus and honey.
The beetles are difficult to capture and require special techniques to extract their essence without damaging the delicate flavor.
