I have been thinking about this recipe
Cicada Sauerbraten with Spätzle
Marinade:
½ C vinegar
½ C water
¼ onion, sliced
¼ stalk celery or 1 tsp celery seed
¼ carrot, chopped
3 peppercorns
2 cloves
1/16 tsp mustard seeds
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp honey
¼ tsp ginger
Mix together in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Sauerbraten:
1 portobello cap
¼ – ½ C blanched, teneral cicadas
¼ lemon, sliced
Mix mushroom and cicadas together in a bowl. When the liquid is boiling, pour it over the mushroom-cicada mixture. Add the lemon slices, cover the bowl, and let the mixture marinade for at least several hours (preferably, overnight). Drain, then sauté the mushroom, cicadas, onion, and carrots (and celery) in olive oil.

Gravy:
1-2 T whole wheat flour
2 T yogurt
2 T raisins
Heat the marinade mixture. Give the peppercorns, cloves, and mustard seeds some time to add their flavors to the mixture, then remove them. Stir a little of the marinade into the flour, then stir that back into the whole batch, and cook until thickened. When the mixture is thickened, turn off the heat and add the yogurt and raisins.

Spätzle Noodles:
1 egg
whole wheat flour, as needed
Beat the egg slightly, then mix enough whole wheat flour into it to form a thick batter. Use a spatula to mash through a colander into boiling water. Remove when cooked.

Assembly:
Serve the sauerbraten over the spätzle, with the gravy drizzled/poured over the top.

Or this one

German Chocolate Cicada Cake
Ingredients:
1 4-oz package German sweet cooking chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/3 C water
1-2/3 C all-purpose flour (or 1 cup flour and 2/3 cups finely ground dry cicadas)
50 Female cicadas (blanched)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ C butter or margarine
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 egg yolks
2/3 C buttermilk
3 stiff beaten egg whites
coconut-pecan frosting (homemade or from the grocery)

Assembly:
Grease and lightly flour two 8 × 1½ in round baking pans, and set aside.
In a small saucepan combine the chocolate and water, cook and stir until chocolate melts, then cool.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter or margarine on medium speed of an electric mixer for about 30 seconds.
Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well on medium speed, then beat in the chocolate mixture.
Add the dry ingredients and buttermilk alternately to beaten mixture, beating after each addition.
Fold in the beaten egg whites.
Turn cake batter into prepared pans.
Bake in a 350° F oven for 30-35 minutes or until the cake tests done.
Place the cake layers on wire racks and cool for 10 min.
Remove the cake from the pans and cool thoroughly.
Fill and frost top with coconut pecan frosting.
After the frosting is on, line up female cicadas in a circle around the bottom base as well as the top the cake for that elegant decoration that makes this cake delicious.
Makes about 12 servings.
